Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *gămo
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: concubine, co-wife
Russian meaning: наложница, со-жена
Turkic: *Koma
Tungus-Manchu: *gama
Korean: *kòmá
Comments: Ramstedt (SKE 415) thinks of a loan Kor. > Turk., which is highly improbable (see TMN 1, 415); despite late attestation in Turkic the root may well be archaic. For TM one should suppose the original meaning "children of smb.'s concubine(s)".
