Unknown. Hola is etymologically unrelated to the Germanic expressions hello in English and hallo in German.[1] Hola is related to other European greetings such as Old High German halā, holā, emphatic imperative of halōn, holōn (to fetch, used especially in hailing a ferryman)[2] or French holà (whoa there!), from French (there). All of these expressions come from various transformations of the latin word illac, meaning "there". [3] The popular theory of "hola" originating from Arabic وَٱللّٰه (wal-lāh, really?, by God!) is today discredited.
