70 Fabulous & Exotic Persian Girl Names for your New Best Friend:

I have a soft spot for anything Persian, including Persian baby names, since my kids are part Persian! Luckily, they got blessed with the mile-long eyelashes and gorgeous thick hair of their Persian relatives.  I’ll be stuck using eyelash serums forever just trying to keep up with my lucky kids.

What I Love About Persian Girl Names:

But, back to baby names, something I love about Persian names, which is also the case with Arabic names, is they use letters like X, Y and Z a lot more than you’ll see in European names. I happen to love this exotic flair and the unique quality that it gives to baby names. Names like Cyra, Friya, Yasmin, Zara, and Zoya are easy to pronounce in many languages, but are not something you’ll hear every day, either.

While there are so many more beautiful Persian girl names, I stuck with the more modern choices on the curated list below that I felt could translate well for the international family. So, if you’ve been looking for something with a little pizzazz, you might find the perfect name for your new little best friend here on this list.
