No, it's a Syriac word used in some Arab countries to call the fourth month of the year that's April.

No... نيسان (nisan) = April.
Nissan's name is straightforward.
The kanji 日 means “sun,” but is also the first character in what the Japanese people call their county, Nihon/日本.
Combine that with san, meaning “production,”
Nissan's name essentially means “Japanese-made.”
