Shoran was a village in the territory of the Iravan uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Gamarli (Artashat) district, and present-day Ararat province.

The village was inhabited by 148 Azerbaijanis in 1897, 80 in 1904, 185 in 1914 and 144 Azerbaijanis in 1916. The Azerbaijanis were attacked, massacred or expelled from their historical and ethnic lands by Armenian armed units in spring 1918, and the Kurds were settled in the village. Later, the village was abolished.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the word “shoran” meaning “a saline soil”.
