What is the etymology of the name of the municipality "Pomas", located between Carcassonne and Limoux?

It is pronounced both with and without a voiced "s", I believe locally with the voiced s.

Has it something to do with pommes?

French Wikipedia page of Pomas said it was called "Pomars" before which could come from "vergers de pommiers", that is to say apple orchard so maybe a link yes
