They have the same etymological origin as the word ‘horripiladores’, which comes from the union of the Latin terms ‘horrēre’ (to get erect / rigid) and ‘pilus’ (hair) being its literal meaning: to wear the hair on end and that has gave rise to words like ‘horrifying’, ‘horrible’, ‘horror’, ‘horrifying’, ‘horrendo’ and ‘horrísono’; all of them with a direct relationship with what causes anguish or intense fear.
