Anagrams edit

Latin edit

Etymology edit

Likely ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *gʷelH- (to throw) via Ancient Greek, whence also volō (to fly). Possibly derived via Ancient Greek βαλλίζω (ballízō, to dance, jump about) found in Sicilian dialects of Magna Graecia; or may merely share a common root, cognate to Ancient Greek βάλλω (bállō, to throw). Alternately, maybe related to πάλλω (pállō, to swing, shake).
