Isn't it possible that "om" carries the meaning of "person", besides the one of "man"?

Now I know that om (cognate with Spanish hombre and French homme, both meaning "man") usually means "person", and only occasionally means "man". As you probably know, the preferred word for "man" is bărbat, which comes from Latin barbātus ("bearded").
