Saladin Name Meaning

Muslim: from an Arabic personal name, ?Salla?h ud-Din ‘righteousness of religion’. This was the title adopted by Yusuf ibn-Ayyub, sultan of Egypt (1138–93), known to the western world as Saladin, who opposed, for the most part successfully, the Crusades undertaken by Richard I of England and Philip II of France. This name is widespread throughout the Muslim world. French: nickname for a blustering or tyrannical individual, from the name of the medieval Egyptian sultan (see 1 above), who, because of his success in combating the Crusaders, became demonized in French and Italian folklore as a monster second only to Herod.
