Meaning of Aryan

Aryan is a Kurdish, Persian and Urdu name for boys and girls that means “member of the Arya people”. Arya itself is a word that in Sanskrit, Avestan and Old Persian means “noble”, “excellent”, therefore Aryan means “one who belongs to the noble people”. Arya is the word that the people of ancient greater Persia used to call their own race, and therefore Aryan also means “one who is from Persia”. Ancient Persia includes today’s Iraq, Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan.
