Attestation: VR·1 (komono[s) (1)
Language: Celtic
Word Type: proper noun
Semantic Field: personal name

Grammatical Categories: gen. sg.
Stem Class: on

Morphemic Analysis: kom-onos
Phonemic Analysis: /komonos/
Meaning: 'of Komu'


Most likely an on-stem personal name in the genitive, but see also Delamarre 2007: 227, who analyses the name as kom- + mono- '?' (thus an o-stem). Possibly a short name derived from a compound with first element kom-, cf. como, also comio, RIG L-135 comios, G-154 κομμου (dat.), comm(i)us, and (uncertain) koma at Giubiasco (cf. Lejeune 1971: 63 f., n. 207, Delamarre 2007: 70 f.).

Also attested as base of a patronym, see komoneos.
