Shanxi Province got the name from its location of being to the west of the Taihang Mountain. Most of its today's territories belonged to the State of Jin  in the Spring and Autumn period, so it's called Jin for short. It was later divided into three states, Han, Zhao, and Wei States, in the early Warring States period. So its short name is also "Three Jin"in Chinese.
