HASSETT Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of early medieval French origin and is an example of that sizable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. Hassett is a Northern Irish variant of the name Hasard, which would have been given to a gambler or a brave or foolhardy man who was prepared to run risks. The derivation is from the Old French, and Middle English "hasard", game of chance, a word originally derived from the Arabic "az-zahr", from az, an assimilated form of the definite article, "al" and "zahr", die.
