I would like you to correct your post.
It is a hoax.
According to Wiki
Hello, with that spelling, was used in publications as early as 1833. These include an 1833 American book called The Sketches and Eccentricities of Col. David Crockett, of West Tennessee,[SUP][/SUP] which was reprinted that same year in The London Literary Gazette.

The word was extensively used in literature by the 1860s.

To be sure, something like hello had been with us for a long time as a shout that the English had learned from the French in the Middle Ages. Ho là! they would say. It meant both "stop" and "pay attention," or in the words of an early translator, "hoe there, enough, soft soft, no more of that; also, heare you me, or come hither." In various English shouts and reshouts over the centuries, this became holla (1523), hollo, hollow (1542), and hillo, hilloa (1602). For long-distance shouts the ending was lengthened to -oo, leading to halloo (1568) and hulloo (1707). By the nineteenth century the variants included hallo, halloa (1840) and hullo, hulloa (1857).

If your research shows a different reasoning for the word "Hello" my research shows what I have mentioned above. That does not mean you advice others to do research before posting.

My view –

Hello has its origin in our Dravidian languages – as always!!. :) :)

So for people who follow my posts, English comes from Latin & Latin originates here from the descendants of the Alexander Roman soldiers!.

Sanskrit = Old Dravidian + Old Egyptian + Old Greek

(Alexander declares himself a Pharaoh, adopts the Egyptian Gods, language, culture before his invasion to India as per Ancient Greek Sources- and the fact that Ramayana (Troy) war, is recorded in Sanskrit means, the Mixed Greek people (Rama = Ramses = Agamemnon/Menelaus & his people) spoke this language officially… so clearly Sanskrit evolves from Old Dravidian, Old Egyptian & Old Greek - not to mention, Sanskrit is pronounced like Dravidian –agreed by all researchers)

Latin = Dravidian - Sanskrit + old Roman + Old Greek (Pre Indian Invasion Languages) ** In the Ramayana, King Ravana is known as a great Sanskrit Scholar, so the Trojans/Romans also spoke this language.

English = Originates from Latin + continued influence of Dravidian as the languages originates here.

So all the Shakespearean English (highly Latinized – most current English speakers cannot understand this well), & his novels (Romeo/Juliet) originate here! Since English originates here, Hello also must have its origin here…

so now you know why some western researchers claimed Sanskrit as the mother language for all the modern languages today !! Though they were intellectually dishonest to not provide the detailed proof to justify the claim – so unfortunately this statement is known as speculative than the real truth!!

so do we have any direct evidence of the word Hello in our languages?????

You can see a close parallel to the Kannada words – “Yello Idiya” = “Where are you”?, so “Yello” in Kannada = “Where”

For those who are interested - If you watch closely, you can see many parallels of English, Latin in our languages – of course allow for words & pronunciation changes.

Mabel Gardiner Hubbard (November 25, 1857 – January 3, 1923), was the daughter of Boston lawyer Gardiner Greene Hubbard, who was the first president of the Bell Telephone Company. As the wife of Alexander Graham Bell, an eminent scientist and the inventor of the first practical telephone, she took the married name Mabel Bell.

From the time of Mabel's courtship with Graham Bell in 1873, until his death in 1922, Mabel became and remained the most significant influence in his life. Folklore held that Bell undertook telecommunication experiments in an attempt to restore her hearing which had been destroyed by disease close to her fifth birthday, leaving her completely deaf for the remainder of her life.
Mabel Gardiner Hubbard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One of Bell’s students was Mabel Hubbard, daughter of Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a founder of the Clarke School. Mabel had become deaf at age five as a result of a near-fatal bout of scarlet fever. Bell began working with her in 1873, when she was 15 years old. Despite a 10-year age difference, they fell in love and were married on July 11, 1877.

Hello is a salutation or greeting in the English language. It is attested in writing as early as the 1860s.
