@R2: Maybe a hint to further ancestors. It is fun indeed, I thought it was a Turkish way to say "Art" the first time I read it.

Nope, we use "sanat" for art, but I guess in Arabic (and also in older Turkish) the meaning of the word is broader like craft, skill.

Hmm not quite it. A craft would be San'a (there's a sound in the apostrophe that doesn't exist in most languages). A skill is more referred to as Hazq or Mawhiba. Art is Fann, plural Foonoon.

Sanat means "year of".

San'ta!

Santiago.

San Diego.. CARMEN SAN DIEGO WHERE IS SHE?? You'd think the name would give it away.

Then it comes from San'a for sure, San'at stands for "craft of" or "skill of". You're right.

The sound is difficult to describe. Like the one in 'ashk, Mi'mar Sinan... etc.

I guess, it was Turkish sometime ago since it's a surname in Turkish but it has no meaning today, I once checked, means diary products in some distant local dialect but that's far fetched. We have surnames since 1934, and my great grandfather had nothing to do with diary products, I wonder what he was thinking when he picked it. I like it though, it's one of a kind and I like the sound of it.


That reminds me.

My surname when taken literally is quite embarrassing, as it means eater of lard, which, especially if we consider my bodyshape of some years ago, could be pretty accurate.
But the element of pride is that it actually derives from a noble Messinese family, unfortunately, we are probably a thousand with this surname here in Sicily, so I don't think I can really claim the title...
