    In classic Farsi, KHASHA is one of the names for God, and YAR is friend of or companion with. Therefore, God be/is the bearers Companion/Friend.

    Khashayar does not mean brave. It means the good friend. As Xerxes the great’s name was Khashayarsha Shah of Persia. Meaning the good friend king, which mean he was the protector and friend of the Persians.
