3. Etymology: The Latin word for a "balance" or "scales" was libra. English took it as The zodiacal sign and it lies behind many terms for units of measurement, including litre, or liter and the abbreviation lb or £ for British currency known as the "pound".

Its diminutive form was libella, which denoted an "instrument for checking horizontally" and hence a "horizontal line".

It passed into Old French as livel; which in modern French has become niveau, "level", and it entered English as level.
