Okay. I would have thought it would be something similar to Kišobran but without the kišo.

In some dialects сенка (senka), meaning shadow is used. Probably umbrellas were originally used for sunlight protection.

Interesting, чадор is considered a <a href="http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%DA%86%D8%A7%D8%AF%D8%B1#Persian">related loanword</a> with шатор. Both are clammed to be originating from Persian çādur. Could this have common origin with Slavic <a href="http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D1%87%D0%B0%D0%B4"&gt;чад</a>?
