The Lom people, also called Bosha (sometimes spelled Posha), are an ethnic group of Transcaucasia. Their Lomavren language is a mixed language combining Indo-Aryan and Armenian. The Lom like the Dom are sometimes considered a separate branch of the proto-Romani people who remained in Eastern Asia Minor and Armenia in the 11th century, while the ancestors of the contemporary Romani people immigrated further west in the 13th - 14th centuries. The names Dom, Lom and Rom are likely to have the same origin, see Names of the Romani people for details.
