Hazard Name Meaning
English: Anglo-Norman French variant of Hansard . English and French: nickname from Old French Middle English hasard hazard ‘game of dice’ perhaps given to a player at hazard i.e. a gambler trickster or rascal. The word probably derives from Arabic az-zahr from az assimilated form of the definite article al + zahr ‘die’. It appears to have been picked up in the Holy Land and brought back to Europe by Provençal crusaders. English: possibly in some instances of Flemish origin a nickname from Middle Dutch hasart ‘hare’.
