Sin was the Sumerian Moon god.Sumerians were living more than threethousand years ago in Mesopotamia,which is the ancient name of the region that corresponds to the Valleys of Tigris & Euphrates rivers.
Today Mesopotamia is located in the territories of the states of Iraq & Kuwait....
Sin was worshipped in the city of Ur.The high priest of his temple,chosen from the royal family,was viewed as Sin's spouse.Sin was the descendant of the sky god An.His parents were the air god Enlil and the grain goddess Ninlil.The name Sin indicated the cresent moon.
He was born from the rape of the grain goddess by Enlil.For this crime,Enlil was banished by the assembly of the gods to live in the underworld.When Ninlil realized she was pregnant,she decided to follow Enlil to the world of the dead to let him witness the birth of his child.Unfortunately the birth of SIn in the underworld would have imprisoned him forever in Hades.
Enlil and Ninlil copulated another three times to offer the three children to the infernal deities,that way Sin the first son could ascend to the Heavens to light up the night sky.

I'm afraid you're on the wrong track, there. A lot of words sound like words in other languages simply because there's a limited number of sounds that the human mouth can make.

From wikipedia -- the etymology (origins) of "sin"

The English word sin derives from Old English synn. The same root appears in several other Germanic languages, e.g. Old Norse synd, or German Sünde. The word may derive, ultimately, from *es-, one of the Indo-European roots that meant "to be," and is a present participle, "being." Latin, also has an old present participle of esse in the word sons, sont-, which came to mean "guilty" in Latin. The root meaning would appear to be, "it is true;" that is, "the charge has been proven." The Greek word hamartia is often translated as sin in the New Testament; it means "to miss the mark" or "to miss the target".

The phrase for "sin" in Sumerian is "SHA HATTI"
