    因為磅的原始文字來自於拉丁文的libra, 因此而來.以下為來自外國網站的解釋:ABBREVIATION LB FOR POUND[Q] From Andrea: “Why are pounds, when used as a weight, abbreviated lbs?”[A] The origin is in the Latin word libra, which could mean both balance scales (hence the symbol for the astrological sign Libra, which was named after a constellation that was thought to resemble scales) and also a pound weight, for which the full expression was libra pondo, the second word being the origin of our pound.http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-pou1.htm

    因為重量單位「英磅」的字源是拉丁文libra。

    而幣制單位「英鎊」是從重量單位來的(最早的一英鎊是一英磅重的銀)。
