Meaning, Origin and History of the Name "Shirin"

Determining the origin of or learning the meaning of a name has always been fascinating to me. My kids enjoy playing video games and lots of times I've noticed that the characters have names that sound very unusual to me. In addition, as I am a very active Tumblr blogger, the artists and gamers share interesting tidbits and illustrations about these characters.

Came across a cute illustration by a Tumblr blogger of a character named Shirin.  (See below.)  It was a sketch done for “The Arcana”.  Staying in the know about video games isn't at the top of my “To Do List”; but did have some extra time so did a little research on that name. These are my findings. My research is not extensive but it is enlightening and entertaining.  đŸ˜Š
