https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorin_(prenume) -- mentions the debate about the etymology of this name. Mentions that it might be derived from a French source.

It's impressive how many comment of the origin of this name from "Soare” :D That is plain stupid.
Simple logic says if that were true, then this should have been a very common Romanian name. And also a very old one. Romanians cannot have discovered this name only in the 19th century (or so)! It looks like it took a lot of time for Romanians to connect the Sun to a name!
In reality, SORIN has Jewish origins in SURIN, which in turn is a variation originating in SARAH. Meaning "lady, princess, noblewoman" in Hebrew. It was and it is an uncommon name in Romanian (a first name) and Russian (a family name).
So no relation whatsoever with the Sun.
No connection to the Danish/Norwegian Søren (from Latin SEVERINUS = severe, serious).
No connection to the Thai Surin (สุรินทร์).

The name is derived from soare (sun in Romanian). Soare is of Latin origin (sol). I suppose that the name was invented in 1852 by the writer Dimitrie Bolintineanu (in the poem “Sorin sau tãierea boierilor la Tîrgoviºte”). In Russian (very rare) it is a family name with absolute different etymology. In other languages is probably only a curiosity.

The name Sorin as masculine first name is typical Romanian (the diminutive is Sorinel). As female name is Sorina (more rare). The name become more used after 1950. Generally an intellectual, urban name.

It'd sound nicer pronounced 'Sor-in'.
