The common Spanish abrir, for “open”, comes from the Latin for the same, aperio.
From the same root — in an “ahhhh!” moment — is the English, aperture, the opening of the camera. The sort of word you learn if you ever try to figure out how to use an analog camera!
The a-b of abrir maps to the a-p of aperture, with the “b” and “p” being often and easiliy exchanged.
