Shajguran was a winter pasture located in the territory of the Gazakh uezd of the former Yelizavetpol (Ganja) governorate, later in the former Shamshaddin (Berd) district, and present-day Tavush province. It was dissolved in 1930.

The toponym was coined by adding the word “guran” (the original variant is “khuren” ) used in the sense of “a camp, military camp”, “a fence” in Mongolian to the word “shaj” which is a phonetic variant of the word “saj” (the replacement of the “s-sh” is peculiar to the Azerbaijani language), denoting the name of Yusuf ibn Abi’l Saj, head of the Sajid dynasty.
