Meaning & History

Probably from Italian fasani "pheasant", a nickname for someone who resembled the bird in appearance or (lack of) intelligence, who hunted them, or who lived in an area populated by them.

Alternately, may be from fascia "band, strip (of land)", indicating where the bearer lived.
