MEANING:
This name means “darling, beloved, Dear, loved one, sweet, pleasant, gracious, delicate”. Sherry (Spanish: Jerez) is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. The current Castilian name came by way of the Arabic name “Sherish”, as the town was knows during the Muslim occupation of Iberia and during the Moorish period. Under Moorish rule, the Roman town of 'Ceret' was renamed to Sherish which later evolved to Jerez de la Frontera as it became the frontier. The term "Sherish" derives from the Persian "Shirin" which means sweet, pleasant, gracious, gentle. Names with the letter "C" as "Cheryl, Cherie, Cheray, Cheri, Cherrie have a Latin root as opposed to names beginning with an “S” which have a Persian root, names such as "Sharyl, Sheryll, Sherae, Sherey". From the 19th century both groups of names have mixed and the different variants are no longer attributable to a specific source. Both the roots are needed for a detailed description. Shirin is the name of a character in a Persian and Turkish legend. Shirin was also a wife of the Sassanid Persian Shahanshah (king of kings), Khosrau II.
