ZIYAD (زياد).  Persian name meaning "growth." (Queer Things About Persia, Sladen, 1907)

... One strong antagonist to Moawiya remained, in the person of Ziyad.  This remarkable man was said to be a bastard of Abu Sofian, the father of Moawiya, and was, by his mother, the brother of Abu Bakra, a man of great wealth and position at Basra.  He thus belonged to the tribe of Thaqif at Taif, which produced many very prominent men.  At the age of fourteen years Ziyad was charged with the financial administration of the Basrian army...
