Possibly derived from (or otherwise etymologically related to) Latin sallere "to salt, to preserve with salt" or from Latin saliō "to leap, to jump, to spring". There have been several bearers of this name throughout history, such as Gaius Sallustius Crispus, a Roman historian from the 1st century BC.
