BASIT (باسط).  Arabic name, derived from the word basît (the outspread), hence "one who enlarges." (Arabic Series: Elementary Arabic, Thornton, 1905).

... Ibn Mardanísh was the son of Sa'd, son of Mohammed, son of Ahmed, son of Mardanísh.  His name was Mohammed, and his kunyá or appellative Abú 'Abdillah.  He was, however, better known by the surname of Ibn Mardanísh.  His father, Sa'd, had served under the Almoravides.  He was governor of Fraga when Ramiro, King of the Franks, besieged that city in the year 528 (A.D. 1134).  His uncle, Mohammed, surnamed Sáhibu-l-basít (the hero of Albacete), had also been one of the most distinguished warriors of his time...
