Persian Baby Names

Similar to Asian names, Persian names depict strength, virtue, colors and beauty. A name might mean "New Year" or "Happy Fortune." Male names could be after gods or kings while female names depict wisdom, fertility, and goddesses. Although most names used in Iran are from Islam, there are still traditional Persian names that may be occasionally found in the area.
