130 Parsi Baby Names With Meanings

Parsis, the Iranian Zoroastrians descendants, are the micro-minority community in India. These peace loving people, mostly select Persian names for first names, such as Godrej, Tata, Sorab, mainly to preserve their identity. While most of the Indian surnames reflect the lineage or caste, Parsis’ surname reflect their business or occupation, with some surnames ending in ‘wala’. This is largely due to the influence of the British.

But it wasn’t always the same. Until the mid of the British rule, Parsis followed the patronymic system for naming their children, in which the first name would be the chosen name and the second name would be the father’s name. In the 19th century, the Parsis adopted the European system of surnames, in which the family name would be handed down the generations. This doesn’t mean the middle names or patronymic names aren’t in use. They are still very much in use, especially amongst traditional Parsi families.
