Ὅλος is Greek for whole, entire, perfect, complete; complete, utter; generally, on the whole; actually.

While it is tempting to see a relationship between the related words whole, holy on the one hand, and Ὅλος on the other, there appears to be none.

Etymology

From Proto-Indo-European *solwos. Cognates include Sanskrit सर्व (sárva), Avestan 𐬵𐬀𐬎𐬭𐬬𐬀 (haurva), Old Armenian ողջ (ołǰ) and Latin salvus.
