In Romanian there are many ways to say hello. The most common way is "Buna" which if translated literally means "Good" in english but the longer version of this would be "Buna ziua" which means "Good day". Another way to say hello is "Salut", just like in French, however you mostly say this to friends or family. We also say "Alo" but you only say this when your talking on the phone. Then, there's "Hei" which you could obviously guess means "Hey".

In Icelandic, we normally just say (which is more like "hi"). The other way is sæl (talking to a woman) and sæll (talking to a man). There's also simply halló, which is a bit more formal.

In Tagalog, we don't really have a word for hello, so we just say "Kamusta" which literally means "How are you".
