Meaning & History
Russian Jewish surname derived from Шерешёво (Shereshyovo), the Russian name for the Belarusian city of Шарашова (Sharashova), itself probably derived from the Belarusian dialectal word шэраш (sherash) meaning "ice on (a) river" or "gray". A popular folk etymology traces the name to Belarusian шэршань (shershan) meaning "hornet", though this is highly unlikely.
