Güroymak (Kurdish: Norşîn, from Armenian: Նորշեն, Norshen) is a district of Bitlis Province, Turkey. The mayor is Mehmet Emin Özkan (BDP).


The original Armenian name of the district is Norshen (Նորշեն), which is composed of nor meaning new, and shen meaning village. The Kurdish name of the district, Norşîn, by some sources is composed of Semitic, Nur meaning light, and Kurdish Şîn deriving from old Iranian Axshaena/Axshaina, meaning blue.
