Meaning & History

The Ghassan surname originated in the village of Furzol in eastern Lebanon. It is believed that the name came from Shefa-'Amr in Israel, and was brought by Ghassans that were fleeing the unjust rule of Ahmed al-Jazzar, the Wali of Sidon and Damascus in the late 18th century. The Ghassans are descended from the Ghassanids, an Arab Christian tribe that was allied with the Roman Empire, and were conquered by the Muslim Caliphate in the 7th century.
