Irshad Manji's name

In her book The Trouble With Islam, Canadian author Irshad Manji says her name is unisex, but more often given to baby boys than to baby girls, although it's not unheard of to find a woman named Irshad.

I'm wondering about this. What kind of name is Irshad (ie what language, what does it mean, anything else, etc)?

Peace and thanks!
