Halo

Halo

From Greek/Latin halos, signifying roundness: originally "threshing floor with a circular path", then "disk of the sun or moon", then "ring of light around the sun or moon", and finally (in English) "ring of light around the head".

There does not seem to be any connection with the Greek hals/halos meaning 'salt'.
