    Please don’t use this name unless you’re an Iranian national . Just stick with names from the Quran. Leave this lovely name alone.

    Yes Ardeshir is a Persian and none Arabic name
    But the meaning is very different
    Ardeshir in pre-Islamic middle Persian is Artakhshir
    and in ancient Persian it is Arthakhshathtra that means the “Loyal will to truth” Artha in ancient Persian just like Asha in older Avestan means “The Truth” and Khshathtra means “King” or “vigor”
