Although I am sure Zubin could be a Russian surname, the most famous bearer of this as a given name is the orchestra conductor Zubin Mehta. He is a Parsi from India and so the Persian origin of the name is correct for him. According to _The Complete Book of Muslim & Parsi Names_ it means "short spear" or "javelin" in ancient Persian.
