Meaning:Defending man
Zan is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin, meaning "defending man," and another spawned from Alexander, "man's defender." Man surely must have been up to no good in those dark days, requiring the repeated assistance of Zan, Zander, Alexander, and co. Thankfully, now a gender-neutral name, baby Zan can perhaps look to brighter days as a defender of people.
