      1. I was just struck by the word as I wrote it and wondered its origin, sol being Italian for sun and found this “1610s, from Middle French parasol (1570s), from Italian parasole, literally “protection from the sun,” from para- “defense against” (see para- (2)) + sole “sun,” from Latin solem (nominative sol ; see sol ).”
        So yes, it is a sunscreen! 🙂
