Srđan (Serbo-Croatian Срђан/Srđan) (sometimes written as Srdan or Srdjan when the letter 'đ' is unavailable) is a Serbian or Croatian masculine given name.

It is usually considered to be a form of the name Sergius, honoring the Christian martyr and saint Sergius. In South Slavic, Saints Sergius and Bacchus are called "Sveti Srđ i Vlaha" or "Srđevdan" or "Srđandan". A popular etymology derives it from the Serbo-Croatian verb srditi which means being angry, fiery or ardent. Alternatively it may derive from adjective srdačan which means having a good heart.

A medieval version of the name was Srdan. Srđa could be a form of Srđan.

The most common nicknames are Srđa, Srđo, Srki, Srle, Điđa, Đile, etc.
