356 Persian Baby Girl Names With Meanings

Persia has had a glorious past and has been an example of the most developed culture in ancient times. Persia’s heritage and traditions are deep-rooted, but thanks to globalization, certain traditions in the region are changing. The changing trend is evident in how babies are given modern names that are inspired by other cultures and not strictly Persia.

Persian baby girls have unique names inspired from Arabic and Catholic cultures. While their literary masterpiece, Shahnameh is their source of most traditional Muslim names, the Persian Christian culture is the inspiration for the modern names.
