Etymology Edit

Zen's name is derived from either the word that is the Japanese on'yomi/reading of the Chinese word chán (禅), which is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna, meaning 'absorption, meditative state' or, in the case of U.S. soccer/football defender Zen Luzniak, a shortened form of Zenon. Zen is a school of Buddhism which originated in China during the 7th century, and spread to Vietnam, Korea, and Japan. It emphasises rigorous meditation practices, and favours direct personal understanding rather than knowledge of doctrine. Zen meditation became known in the West at the end of the 19th century, and at this time it became used as an English name, albeit sporadically. Interest in the practice and philosophy of Zen grew during the 1950s and '60s, though the name's usage remained sporadic and it wasn't until the late 1990s and 2000s that this name began to be used more frequently.

Zen's middle name is Dieter means "warrior of the people", derived from the Germanic elements thued "people" and hari "army".

Zen's last name is Jäger is from Middle High German jeger(e) meaning "hunter". Which is a reference to his profession of vampire hunting and coming from a long line of Vampire Hunters. And his adopted surname is Cross which is a locative surname meaning "cross". It denoted one who lived near a cross symbol, or near a crossroads.
