SCAPULA - OMOPLATO - SHOULDER-BLADE
Scapula, hoptein in Greek, noted "strike off", and more remotely today it stands for "coma" as the following "," - in modern sense these notions apply to the bone scapula because it "stands out" like a "shoulder-blade" ... and more remotely and less pleasantly we get to "scapo" and "scat", which can point to "escape" or "scatology", the study of excrements.
An alternative is omoplato from "omos" or shoulder-blade, which articulates with the humerus bone. The question is "If these bones are shovel-like?" - indeed scapula is like a scoop and in Ukrainian "skupyi" or selfish, with the implication that such people scoop all what they can for themselves - so it goes - sounds strange, but it is true.
