Orin could be a variant of Orrin, itself an anglicized form of Odhrán, an Irish male name meaning “little pale green one”, or a variant spelling of Oren, a Hebrew male name meaning “pine tree”.

  • 桜 “cherry tree; cherry blossom” + rin 鈴 “bell; chime” (桜鈴);
  • 於 “at; in; on; as for” + 倫 “ethics; companion” (於倫);
  • お “small” (also used as an honorific when it’s used in front of a female name) + rin 鈴 “bell; chime”.

There are other meanings depending on the kanji used. In hiragana it’s written as おりん.
