I recently met a young lady with the name of Sivan. She did not know the meaning of it, other than it is a name of a month. I was wondering if there is a meaning to this name and what it is?

According to Wikipedia, it derives from the Babylonian word for "set time," or from the Assyrian word meaning [apparently] "heat of the sun." But the name in use nowadays is certainly just taken from the month, much like "June" in English.
According to this baby naming website, the name comes from a Biblical word meaning "bush or thorn"
