Meaning:That cuts or divides
Persia is a girl’s name of Greek origin and the former name of the nation now known as modern Iran. The name Persia—defined as something “that cuts or divides”—is said to come from a region in southern Iran called Persis. Over time, Persia grew into greater use among the ancient Greeks as a term for the entire Iranian plateau. Although the name Persia was replaced by Iran in 1935, it remains undeniably linked to the land of the Indo-Iranians, and—who knows—your little Persia might be the one to re-ignite its star power.
