Four syllables starting <Vm> for some vowel?

In case this helps, the final <-s> present in both words is completely irrelevant to guessing their meanings/etymologies.

Ah, no worries of course!

<pt> is from <ct>. [tick]

As a hint: focussing on the initial <i> in the noun isn't going to help.

Woo!
Lol, is that <i> originally epenthetic? [:D]

Hmmm.. is the second word related to <nox, noctis>?

Only the <m> in imasăs is from Classical Latin <m>.

Is the other <m> from an <n>, and did it become <m> due to the presence of a rounded vowel?

from something like <np> or <nb> (with for example a n <in-> prefix)?

Edit: At least not from a prefix.

A consonant was involved, but not one that was originally labial in Classical Latin.
