The latin word humor (fluid) comes from the greek word hymos (the same word is the root for chemistry). From the ancient greek doctor Galen (Galenos) who believed health is the result of balance in the four humors (fluids: phlegm, choler, bile & blood) in our bodies.
Now it translates as: to be able to perceive or enjoy what comical or funny.
In greek it translates as: διάθεση, κέφι, πλάκα, αστείος κλπ.
