Shervin (Persian: شروین), also spelt Sherveen or Sherwin, is a Persian given name. Although predominantly a boys name, the name is occasionally given to girls in the form of "Shervineh" or "Shervin Dokht". The name is understood to mean both "eternal soul" and 'like a lion'.
Shervin is thought to be the shortened form of Anushirvan. One interpretation of the name is a combination of "anousheh", meaning eternal, and "ravan", meaning soul. An alternative translation of Shervin is "like a lion", derived from the words "shir", meaning 'lion', and "vin", meaning 'resembling'.
Shervin was also the name of several princes in the ancient Tabarestan region of Iran (Today's Mazandaran and Gilan), including a grandfather of the author of Marzbannameh (Marzban ibn-e Rostam ibn-e Shervin, 12th century).
