Etymology[edit]

Either from Latin zema (saucepan) or from Ancient Greek ζέμα (zéma, decoction, something boiled or fermented; extract; essence), through a Vulgar Latin intermediate *zema, likely with an Eastern Romance regional sense closer to that of the original Greek than the attested Latin term. Compare Aromanian dzamã.
