Etymology of the name SANI.
Meaning of the baby name SANI.


SANI.  A Native American Navajo name meaning "the old one."

... Some old Navajo silversmiths assert that the art of working silver was introduced from Mexico about sixty years ago, toward the middle of the last century.  About this time a Mexican silversmith named Cassilio came to the Navajo country and taught his art to a Navajo blacksmith called by his people Atsidi Sani, or the "Old Smith."  Cassilio is said to have been still living about 1872... (Rings for the Finger, Kunz, 1917).

ŚANI (शनि).  Hindu name for the planet Saturn, literally meaning "slow."  In mythology, this is the name of a son of Surya.

"Saturn: ’sanaistschara, from ’sanais, slow, and tschara, going; also ’sauri, a name of Vishnu (derived as a patronymic from ’sûra, Grandfather of Kri,) and ’sani.  The planet name ’sani-vârafor 'dies Saturni,' is radically related to the adverb ’sanais, slow. (Cosmos, Humboldt, 1901)

... The story goes that when Ganesha, the son of Siva and his wife Parbutti, was born, the gods came to see the child, and all admired him but Sani—the Indian Saturn—who was afraid to do so, lest some evil influence, proceeding from him, might injure the child... (The Gospel in All Lands, January 1890.)
