Nigel, who, somewhat disturbingly, keeps a Latin dictionary by his side at
all times, responds in a manner that is intended to be helpful, but which is
probably intensely irritating...

"Villus" is a Latin word (2nd declension, masculine) meaning "shaggy hair".
It is related etymologically to "pilus", the Latin word for "a single hair".

Nigel (who wishes he still had shaggy hair these days)
