It's my recollection that I've always known both terms. My grandfather was
very big on nuts; he always had a wide assortment. (I regret to say I
didn't know the proper name for Brazil nuts until well into my teen
years.) I would agree with Lynne that hazelnut came into the fore with the
rise of flavored coffees; hazelnut also seems to be the term of
preference among chocolates, but I know that I saw/heard filbert as a kid,
too in the early 70s in mid-Michigan.
