EtymologyEdit

Most likely inherited from Latin root *sambata, from sambatum, from sabbatum, or less likely from Slavic sonbota, but probably influenced by it. Compare French samedi, itself also from a root *sambati diēs. Cf. also Dalmatian sabata, Ladin sabeda, Friulian sabide, Romansh sonda, sanda, somda.

NounEdit
