asaram/asharam?

I'm wondering if anyone would have any idea what the word asharam means, in any language. It may also be transliterated as asaram or something similar.

I've googled it myself, but haven't found any satisfactory translations, though it seems there are many people/places with the name in India, though I also seem to have found a couple references to the Torah, which lends me to believe it may also be Hebrew.

Thank you.

Edit: I'm fairly sure the similar word ashram, meaning hermitage is not the same word, but thank you.
