It's curious that in Welsh "honey" is "mêl" similar to portuguese "mel", spanish "miel"...

The answer is probably, since I imagine Spanish and Portuguese got their words from Latin which has also had it's influence on Welsh.

I find this one easy to remember, as the (European) honey bee is apis MELlifera!
