739 Persian Baby Names With Meanings

Persian Empire, stretching from the Mediterranean to the Indus River, is considered one of the most culturally advanced empires to date. And also an empire with a complex linguistic and political history. Ancient Persian language was basically an Indo-European language influenced by Italian, Russian, and English, with its own writing system. The Islamic conquests made Arabic the language of Persia. But later, the Islamized Persian ruling revived Persian as the literary language. Thus Persian names have Arabic, ancient Persian, and Turkish sources.

Persian names, embodying advanced civilization, elegance, and royalty, have been gaining extreme importance in the US as well. The names of the Persian speakers residing in Iran consist of a first name and a family name. Parents give the first name to their child at the time of birth or on the sixth day. The family name is inherited from the father or mother. A Persian first or family name can have multiple parts but have to be distinguished clearly as a first or last name.

With so many beautiful Persian baby names, it could get a bit cumbersome and confusing for parents to select one. To narrow down the list, MomJunction has compiled a list of Persian baby names with meaning. Keep reading!
