Eventhough, my source says it is a greek word, Nilus is Latin for "river"

I have this parragraph :
"Neilos per i greci, Nilus per i latini, anche il Nilo trova finalmente una sua spiegazione nel babilonese più antico che per dire e scrivere inondazione
usava nilum. "
My Italian is not that good but I get from
his, that for the Greek it was Neilos, for the Latin Nilus and in old Babylon the word Nilum was used to describe a flood.
