EtymologyEdit

From Old East Slavic субота(subota), from Byzantine Greek σάμβατον(sámbaton), from Ancient Greek σάββατα(sábbata), from Aramaic [script needed](šabbǝtā) or Hebrew שבת(šabbāt). The -бб- arose from the influence of -bb- in the Western languages.

Near cognates: Ukrainian субо́та(subóta); Belarusian субо́та(subóta); Old Church Slavonic сѫбота(sǫbota); Bulgarian съ́бота(sǎ́bota); Serbo-Croatian су́бота.

But also there is Old Church Slavonic собота(sobota) (Czech, Slovak, Polish, Polabian, Lower Sorbian sobota) that is from Medieval Latin sabbatum, from Ancient Greek σάββατα(sábbata).
