The claim fo Arabic origin of the name XAVIER comes from the similarity of the Arabic name JAFFAR or JAFAR, which means brook or little stream. In Italian, the name XAVIER is rendered SAVERIO. In Spanish the name is rendered Javier (Khavier). I'm not sure this answers any questions, but gives more info on the topic. Let me know if anyone else has more info on this.

Thanks,
