If parents are looking for a unique take on the once-popular Irish-rooted Shannon, Shinon might fit the bill. Shinon, of course, is not actually related to Shannon in any way, but they look and sound similar enough to make some prospective parents happy. In reality, Shinon is related to the Japanese name of the flower aster tataricus, and as a name, it means “remembrance.” Alternative methods of writing the Kanji can give Shinon other meanings, such as “tide sound,” “princess,” or “preside over warmth.” No matter which meaning you prefer, there’s no denying that Shinon is a beautiful name, perfect for any baby girl.
