From the name of the 31st surah (chapter) of the Qur'an, which was named after a figure who was mentioned several times in Islamic scripture. His name has been theorised by some to mean "wise" (possibly in reference to his position as a wise man or sage), though it may actually possess Sanskrit roots with similar origins to the names Lakshmana or Lakshmi. Some linguists also believe that it is the name of the legendary figure that the Greeks knew as Aesop, hence the association with story-telling.
