Nariman (also spelled Narriman, Nareeman, Neriman, Nəriman) is a name of Persian origin (Persian: نریمانNarīmān). It has roots traced to the Persian epic, Shahnameh, written by Ferdowsi. The name can mean "faith and brightness". It can also mean "brave, hero", with roots in the Avestan word naire-manå ("brave, manly"). In other countries, like Iran, it is used interchangeably with Nauroz, the Persian festival. In Iran and Azerbaijan it is typically a male given name, whereas in Turkey it is commonly female.
