EtymologyEdit

Attested in local Latin documents at least since 910. Its etymology is debated;[1] most probably it derives from a substrate language.[2] If related to Old Irish comar (co-ploughing),[3] then probably from Proto-Celtic *kom (with, co-) + Proto-Celtic *aro-, the latter from Proto-Indo-European *h₂erh₃- (to ploug).
