Ciao?

One must be careful when one mixes languages.  I sometimes use “Ciao” as a salutation.

Check the meaning:

The word ciao comes from the Venetian language’s s-ciàvo or s-ciào, Italian schiavo, slave. Originally it was used as a salutation (greetings, hello, good-bye) said by a servant to his boss, or mostly as a very formal greeting among the aristocracy when there was rank involved. Literally translated, the phrase sciao means, “I am your slave”.
