Abdul Alhazred again

Sorry to open a new thread - I'd already deleted the original messages, when
an idea came to my mind.
I thought I heard a word sounding similar to Alhazred. I looked into a
Turkish dictionary. Gotcha! _hazretleri_ means 'His Highness' or similar
noble title (don't know them in English). Then I looked into a Persian
dictionary, and found a word _hazrat_ (of Arabic origin) meaning the same.
The root _hozur_ (spelt حضور - HuD`ûr) means 'presence (of an eminent
person, like king, G-d)'. Can it be the name we are looking for? To confuse
_d_ and unaspirated _t_ is easy, isn't it?
