Gender: M Meaning of Zan: "defending men" Origin of Zan: Diminutive of Alexander, Greek

There's Zan and there's Xan--take your pick. Both of these are the latest generation of Alexander nicknames, Xan having been noticed first as a character on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (a rich source of names), and soon phoneticized into Zan. The spellings are running neck and neck in popularity, with Xan slightly ahead, while other parents prefer the longer forms, Xander and Zander, both of which also rank in the two hundreds.
