Got a little one with a personality you just can’t put your finger on? Here’s a beautiful name to capture all their quirks. Zircon is a masculine moniker of mainly Persian descent, derived from a semi-precious gemstone formed in igneous and metamorphic rocks. Its meanings are just as varied as the colors it comes in—some say it originates from the Persian word zargun for “gold-hued,” while others believe it’s rooted in the Arabic word zarkun for “cinnabar” or “vermilion.” But why choose one translation when your bold, bright-eyed Zircon can treasure them all?
