Sarazin Name Meaning
French and Dutch: nickname for someone of swarthy appearance or for an unruly person, or for someone who had taken part in a Crusade, from Old French sarrazin ‘Saracen’ (compare Italian Saraceno). This word came into French via Latin and Greek from a Semitic term, perhaps akin to Arabic sharq ‘sunrise’, ‘east’, from sharaqa ‘to rise’.
