Last name origins & meanings:
- Muslim: from the Arabic personal name ̣Hasān
‘good’, ‘handsome’. Hasan (c.625–669) and his brother
Husain were sons of the khalif ‛Alī ibn Abī ̣Tālib
(see Ali) and, through their mother Fatima, grandsons of the
Prophet Muhammad. Shiite Muslims regard Hasan and his brother Husain
as the true successors of Muhammad. The name is popular among Sunni
Muslims as well as Shiites.
