This time I would recomend it... "Shambria" understood as a work of caprice will find itself having a hard time being accepted as such... If we would take it was made from sheer caprice then we could say it means "sh[adowy] [u/a]mbria[=shadow]" and it would feet into a caprice-oriented explanation of it's existance... Caprice is illogical or metalogical and it's products go beyond sense having no actual meaning... I would say that instead it could be an onomatopeya for either a real African word or for the false "condensation" of all African words "known" (or thought to be known) by the author... Which language? Any language could be... even an extinct dialect or mispronounced words (seen the explanation for the names of many plants and animals? say... The kangaroo to say the least)(Just an opinion of course:$) Bye and good luck
