    I looked for the etymology of the fly, and yes, it’s the same “fly” as “to fly in the air” (with the same Proto-Indo-European root: *plew-. “to fly”)
    Sorry, birds -_-
    That said, it also used to be the word for any winged insect, not just the common Musca.

      Different PIE roots from greek/latin/english birds, too.
