Did both words begin with a labial stop in Classical Latin?
Oops, sorry for missing this question: yes for the first word, and the second word did not exist in Classical or Vulgar Latin (but in Mediaeval Latin it did begin with a bilabial stop). [tick]
No worries, of course!

Oh, interesting. Was the second word a loan from a non-Italic Indo-European language?

[tick] Rather, it is a verbal derivation of such a loan.

I should note that while it does descend from Latin, it does not descend from a noun.
