    Name Meaning

    English (Kent): unexplained. Theoretically it might be a topographic name for someone who lived near or on a headland, from Middle English ness, nass, naiss (Old English næss, ness) ‘promontory, headland’ + -er. No medieval evidence for this name has been found, but compare the synonymous Nass and Ness , and also the headland known as The Naze in Essex.Muslim: variant of Nazir .Muslim: occupational name from Arabic nāẓir ‘overseer, headmaster’.
