Derived from the Middle Persian (a.k.a. Pahlavi) adjective rōyēn meaning "brazen", which is ultimately derived from the Middle Persian noun rōy meaning "brass, copper". Known bearers of this name include Georgian historian Roin Metreveli (b. 1939) and Georgian soccer player Roin Kvaskhvadze (b. 1989).
