What does "Ole" mean?

I know this is silly, I know only the basic Spanish, but my kids have asked me what "Ole'" means, and I can't find it anywhere.

    Ole is a word that comes from Arabic that means Bravo.. you say it during Bull runs to encourage a Matador to do a good job.. some Spaniards use it ( once in a while) to show that you´ve done a good job.. They Say , " Ole, muy bien" ( not all Spaniards say this but like i said that's what that means.. so you can tell your kids what it means.. and hopefully they will get a better understanding of OLE!

    Take care.....

    Ole comes from Arabic( wallah) literally means by God , it is equivalent to Bravo, it is an encourging word that Arabs use even today when admiring or encourging someone or something , the word in Arabic has different variation (ya allah \ allah \ wallah).
