Diminutive of Sebastian or Basil; Kurdish
"regal; falcon"

Baz Origin and Meaning

The name Baz is boy's name meaning "regal; falcon".
As Bas, it's a popular name in The Netherlands, but Baz, as in director Luhrmann, has potential for independent life too.

Curiously, Australian-born Moulin Rouge director Luhrmann was born neither Sebastian nor Basil, but had the name Mark Anthony on his birth certificate; his nickname arose from his supposed resemblance to a British TV fox puppet named Basil Brush.
