WHAT DOES MY NAME MEAN?

Its always interesting to know what our names mean. Sure, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but for each one of us our own name is special. Our parents gave it to us and we will carry it throughout our life – love it or hate it! Does your name match your personality? Can you live up to the ideals of your name?

These are just some of the names Zoroastrians have been given. If your name is not here, please send it in to us and try tell us what it means. Perhaps you could even surprise your parents/grandparents by telling them what their names mean! Some of these names may be spelt differently to yours, but it sounds the same it generally means the same.

Have fun name spotting!
