Etymology[edit]

The Old English form CUMB is recorded to have been retained in place names[8], the vowel being short. Its Celtic cognates include Irish CUMAR[8] and Welsh CŪM, spelled CWM[8], attributed to Celtic type *CUM(B)Ā[7].

[0] means 'Absolutely not; [1] means 'Exceedingly unlikely'; [2] means 'Very dubious'; [3] means 'Questionable'; [4] means 'Possible'; [5] means 'Probable'; [6] means 'Likely'; [7] means 'Most Likely' or *Unattested; [8] means 'Attested'; [9] means 'Obvious' - only used for close matches within the same language or dialect, at linkable periods.
