Iranian Baby Names

Iranian names are the names used by the people of Iran in southwestern Asia. Most names are of Arabic and Persian origin. The difference between names of Persian and Iranian origin is that names of Persian origin are derived from legendary and historic figures and mythology, like Zoroastrianism, and come from the Persian language, while Iranian names may come from Arabic names or Turkish names. These names consist of one or more given names and a family name. Before the 20th century the people of Persia (Iran) did not use surnames. See also our category of Persian names.
