Jawed (Javed, Javid جاود; UrduJawaid, Javaid جاوید) is a masculine given name of Persian origin, with a meaning of "eternal".

The name is from Modern Persian "eternal". The word continues Middle Persianjāwēd, from an Old Persian*yāvaitat, ultimately from *yauu-, Iranian oblique stem of *āiuu- "age, duration", cognate with Greek αἰών " eon".

It is not a traditional given name; it was chosen as a pseudonym by Huseyn Javid (Huseyn Abdulla oglu Rasizadeh) in the early 20th century. The given name became popular among Indian Muslims from about the 1940s, and remains a popular name for baby boys in Pakistan.
