Ayrim is a village in the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, later in the former Barana (Noyemberyan) district, and currently in the Tavush province. The provincial centre lies 60 km to the northwest of the town of  Karvansara (Ijevan), by the Tona (Debet) River, on the Iravan-Tiflis railway, and at a height of 500 m above sea level.

The village was initially solely inhabited by Azerbaijanis who gradually left the village following the settlement of Armenians in the area.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the Turkic Ayrim ethnonym. The official documents present it as “Ayrum”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Tavush province.
