Ultimately Iranian *fs^u-pa:na- 'livestock-guardian' (with Torsten's favourite first element), i.e. 'shepherd', cf. Modern Persian s^uba:n. No need to take God's name in vain; <coebanum> means quite simply 'from Ceba (modern Ceva)', a town in Italy. Ceban cheese, not shepherd's cheese.

This is why, there is no link  in the case coebanum/cioban but, the turkish word Cioban is assume to be the etymology. Well, these are the explanations... are they right, are they wrong, God knows maybe better..
