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.
