A jazz slang word for Jesus Christ; short for Nazarene. Due to Lord Buckley; see The Nazz.

Also the nickname of a character in Spider Robinson's Time Pressure (later, part II of Deathkiller). The Nazz is an acid casualty who looks like Jesus and comes up with all manner of neat ideas. In the story, he invented the mouse -- and passed the idea to some friends at Xerox PARC.
