ZAMBRA | ZAMBRINO

Zambra is typical of the Comasco, of Nessus and Como, with a small strain also at Canal San Bovo in Trentino, could derive from a nickname based on the archaic dialect word Comasco Zambra (Zimarra, a kind of very elaborate overcoat and decorated or long dressing gown, with Very wide sleeves, used by the people on the subject), perhaps to indicate that the ancestor was accustomed to wear it often.
