The name of this city branches from the old Persian word, "Shir" which means lion. It might be because of the mountain in the south of the city which looks like a big lion at rest. The history of Shirvan is more than 7000 years old, as archaeologists found some graves in Gelian an Khanlogh (Villages of Shirvan) which are related to Achaemenid Empire era.
