The surname Basin is derived from the French given name Basil. Basil is derived from the ancient Greek given name Basileios, meaning royal. In some cases the name may also be of occupational derivation, stemming from the word bombasin, which was a kind of cotton cloth. In such a case the name would have referred to a maker or seller of such cloth.
