The word Shrikhand is a combination of two words: “Shri” + “Khand”. “Khand” in general has two meanings. It can mean a part of something (like a part of a region). It may also mean sugar or sweet. “Shri” is the syllable for the Hindu God Vishnu. In Hindu mythology, Krishna, an avatar of Vishnu, was known to be very fond of butter. Hence Shrikhand means the sweet-part of yogurt that is very dear to Krishna.
