ḥayzabūn حَيْزَبُون

ḤZB
n.f.
old hag – WehrCowan1979.
Etymology obscure. A relation to →ḥizb ‘group, party’ seems rather unlikely.

▪ DRS 9 (2010)#ḤZB-5 Ar ḥizbāʔ ‘terrain raboteux’; ḥazābin ‘épais, rude, courtaud, massif’, ḥayzabūn ‘vieille femme (rusée, mauvaise)’.
▪ Cf. perhaps also DRS 9 (2010)#ḤZB-1 Ar ḥazaba ‘advenir, survenir, atteindre qn. soudainement’, ḥazb ‘difficultés’; ? Mhr ḥəzūb ‘être vigilant, prêt à agir’.
▪ Etymology obscure.
▪ DRS 9 (2010) suggests to put ḥayzabūn together with other items, now obsolete, like ḥizbāʔ ‘rocky hill, rugged ground’ (ḤZB_4 in →ḤZB), ḥazābin ‘thick, coarse, rude, bulky and short’ (ḤZB_5), and ḥinzāb ‘dto. (as ḥazābin); wild carrot; cock’. The common denominator here would be the coarseness, rudeness, compactness. The authors of DRS also mention the possibility that this complex “perhaps” should can be connected with →ḥazaba ‘to befall, happen, occur’ (ḤZB_1 in →ḤZB), »comme les aspérités et surprises de la vie et du chemin« (like the unevenness and asperity of a path or the surprises of life).

For other items of the root cf. →ḥazaba , →ḥizb and (for the general picture) →ḤZB.
