There is an event the night before a Bris. It's called Vacht Nacht in Yiddish and called Zohar amongst certain Sefardim; I am aware that people of German decent have a third name for it, which I can't recall. What is the source for this event?

I believe the Zohar (Lech Lecha 90b) is the source for the recitation of the Zohar. The idea of a Shlaom Zachor is mentioned in the Rama 265. However, this idea is in the aforementioned Shach.
