The word 'bomb' originally came to the English language in the 16th century to mean mortar shells and the like. It came from the likes of French 'bombe' and Italian 'bomba', which mean 'a deep hollow noise'. These in turn came from the Greek word 'bombos' which means the same thing.
ボム [bomb] in Japanese.
