Thank you for your reply. Apologies for the delay in mine!
It is still unclear to me as to why so many believe the name to be Arabian in origin.
Also, it is interesting that you mention that there could be borrowing from both sides (Spanish/Basque & Moor) are there any other instances specifically where the Moors might have borrowed European names?
