Why is unanimous agreement between all parties and unilateral only from a single party, I would have thought they would mean the same based on the “un” deriving from uno?

google says...unanimous means everyone involved agress - unilateral means someone has made the decision but there might be other who disagree with it but have no power/authority etc...

Google 'unanimous etymology' and 'unilateral etymology' and you'll probably be able to figure it out
