Name origin

Source(s) : Information International SAL - The Monthly
Researchers believe there are three possible origins for the name:

The root word “zoun” meaning feeding and arming, and from it derives the word “zayna” which means weapons.

The second possible origin is a two-word Syriac term “bet zayna” with “bet” referring to a house or a shop while the second part, “zayna” means weapons thus the term refers to a weapons shop.

Zane could refer to an herb of the family of cereal, which normally grows among wheat.
