Sargun ( ਸਰਗ੝ਨ ) is made from the two roots 'sar' which means 'with' and 'gun' which means 'form' or 'quality' or 'merit'. So the these two combined means "with physical form" or "with quality/attribute" or "with merit". When referring to God it means "manifest" or "with highest attributes", "supreme form", etc

Gurbani quotes

ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਆਕਾਰ ਆਪਿ ਨਿਰਗ੝ਨ ਸਰਗ੝ਨ ਝਕ ॥
Nirankĝr ĝkĝr ĝp nirgun sargun ek.
He Himself is formless, and also formed; the One Lord is without attributes, and also with attributes.

ਸਰਗ੝ਨ ਨਿਰਗ੝ਨ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਸ੝ੰਨ ਸਮਾਧੀ ਆਪਿ ॥
Sargun nirgun nirankĝr sunn samĝḝẖī ĝp.
He possesses all qualities; He transcends all qualities; He is the Formless Lord. He Himself is in Primal Samaadhi.

ਰਾਜ ਜੋਬਨ ਪ੝ਰਭ ਤੂੰ ਧਨੀ ॥ ਤੂੰ ਨਿਰਗ੝ਨ ਤੂੰ ਸਰਗ੝ਨੀ ॥੨॥
Rĝj joban parabẖ ṯūʼn ḝẖanī. Ŧūʼn nirgun ṯūʼn sargunī.(2)
O God, You are my power, authority and youth. You are absolute, without attributes, and also related, with the most sublime attributes.(2)
