The origins of this Hungarian name are unclear. The Magyar word "gomba," means mushroom; so it is possible that the surname was originally a nickname for someone who gathered or sold mushrooms. There is a place named gombas in Hugary, and some instances of this surname may be derived from the place name. Some instances of the Gombas surname are no doubt patronymic in origin, being created as a surname from the first name of a father.
