Latin has words umbella and umbraculum , both of which are formed from umbra , "shadow", and means "umbrella". Umbella is, literally, "little shadow" and umbraculum a shadow "device". Note that the Latin umbella is written without the " r " of the umbra . The word Italian ombrello , which is the immediate source of English "umbrella", comes from umbella, but acquired a 'r' during its development, through the influence of the umbra .
