He came here as a query from a synonym for some meaning of "isamar". Regardless of whether or not it is real (it may make etymological sense), it occurs to me that it could also have another meaning if it comes from the Arabic muzama ("dry, dried"), which in Spanish already gave rise to mojama; but you have to confirm if someone uses it as a "dry fish"?
