Thanks dude :) I'm not sure that my name has a "meaning" but I do know that it is the name of a holy river in northern India where a mythological God was born. Given the religious connotation of my name, I guess it's rather ironic that I'm on an atheist forum... :)
Do you have any idea why your parents named you Sassan?
My actually name is Sharayu and my parents are Hindu. But you are absolutely correct about the name Shahrzad being Iranian/Persian, I remember it from the One Thousand and One Nights stories I read a few years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scheherazade
