Meaning & History

Filo is a Slovak pet form of the personal name Filip.

It is also the name of a very thin unleavened dough used for making pastries such as baklava and börek in Middle Eastern and Balkan cuisines. Filo-based pastries are made by layering many sheets of filo brushed with olive oil; the pastry is then baked.
