Sher is a feminine name that acts as a short version of Sheryl and a fun twist on Cher or Cheryl. Coming from the French terms cher or chérie, it can translate to “dear” or “darling.” This adorable term of endearment can always be attached to your bundle of joy with the name Sher. If you’re looking for a name with more bite, Sher may also have Persian and Hindi roots, meaning “lion.” As baby grows into their mane and strengthens their claws, Sher can make for a lion-hearted fit.
