Etymology 1[edit]

From Old Spanish filo, from Latin fīlum, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *gʷʰiH-(s-)lo-. Doublet of filo. Although both were inherited, it is not fully certain why the two diverged and why filo, preserving the initial -f- from Old Spanish, took on the sense of “edge”, while hilo maintained that of “string, thread” (in line with the original Latin meaning).[1] Cognate with English file.
