Common variant form (or variant transcription) of the Middle Persian name Husraw (also found written as Husrav), which is the Middle Persian form of the Avestan name Husravah (also found written as Haosravah and Husrava). The name means "of good fame" and is derived from Avestan hu meaning "good, well, kind" combined with Avestan sravah (also sravas) meaning "fame".
