I find the word nihilominus remarkable. Like many Spanish or English words, the meaning can sort of be deduced from the meaning of the words making the composite (e.g. paraguas in Spanish, whiteboard in English). As far as my learning of Latin is going, I have not encountered many such composite words in Latin.
Anyway, it came to my mind that nihilominus is actually very similar, in terms of composition and meaning, to the English word "nonetheless" (since nihilo = nothing and minus = less[er]). I cannot find the etymology of the latter though. Are the two words historically related, or both are the mere outcome of an independent linguistic composition process that fortuitously yielded almost identical words, like if one would be the translation of the other?
