In a roundabout way. Choleric (literally, filled with yellow bile) as a synonym for having an irritable personality is a reference to one of the four humors of ancient Greek medicine; the others were sanguine (filled with blood, optimistic), phlegmatic (filled with phlegm, even-tempered or apathetic) and melancholic (filled with black bile, depressed).
Cholera the disease got its name based on the large amount of fluid its victims lost, which the Greeks (mis)diagnosed as all of the bile leaving the body.
Note that melankolia, sangvina and flegma also exist in Esperanto.
