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’.
