Origen

late 16th century (earlier as salve): from French salve, Italian salva 'salutation'.

More
  • salute from (Late Middle English):

    Salute is from Latin salutare ‘greet, pay one's respects to’, from salus, ‘health, welfare, greeting’ as greetings usually involve wishing someone good health. The same root gives us salutary (Late Middle English) originally ‘conducive to health’ and salubrious (mid 16th century) ‘healthful’. Salvo (late 16th century) comes, via Italian, from the Roman greeting salve, from salutare, and safety, salver, and save also go back to the same root.
