If it is not connected with a root relating to the noise[3] boulders cause, then there is Unified Cornish BILI[4], [from a root *BUL-[7]] (pebbles), that may imply a pre-Norse root for all these words. The Dutch word in the Entry is the most likely etymon[7], unless, of course, it be borrowed from English.

[0] means 'Absolutely not; [1] means 'Exceedingly unlikely'; [2] means 'Very dubious'; [3] means 'Questionable'; [4] means 'Possible'; [5] means 'Probable'; [6] means 'Likely'; [7] means 'Most Likely' or *Unattested; [8] means 'Attested'; [9] means 'Obvious' - only used for close matches within the same language or dialect, at linkable periods.
