Shameran is name of the goddess of wisedom and  guardian of the secrets in Kurdish mythology.
It's name literally means ''king of the snakes''.  Shameran is thought to have an anthropomorphic figure with a female head on a snake body, the way she is often depicted and her pictures are traditionally hung on bedroom walls of Kurdish girls.

Shameran  which can be compared with the Greek ''Mermeid'', exactly corresponds with the snake-legged goddess of earth, Api (see here), in the Scythian (ancient Kurds) mythology.

Other spellings of the name include: Shamaran, Shahmeran, Shahmaran and alike.
