From Middle English _hool_ (“healthy, unhurt, whole”), from Old English _hāl_ (“healthy, safe”), from Proto-Germanic _*hailaz_ (“whole, safe, sound”) (compare West Frisian _hiel_, Low German _heel_/_heil_, Dutch _heel_, German _heil_, Danish _hel_), from Proto-Indo-European _*kóh₂ilus_ (“healthy, whole”) (compare Welsh _coel_ (“omen”), Breton _kel_ (“omen, mention”), Old Prussian _kails_ (“healthy”), Albanian _gjallë_ (“alive, unhurt”), Old Church Slavonic _цѣлъ_ (cělŭ, “healthy, unhurt”). Related to hale, health, hail, and heal. The spelling with _wh-_, introduced in the 15th century, was for disambiguation with hole.
