Persian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Iranian (see Parthian 𐭅𐭓𐭉𐭇𐭓𐭌 (Wahrām, war god, god of victory) and Middle Persian 𐭥𐭫𐭧𐭫𐭠𐭭 / 𐭥𐭠𐭧𐭫𐭠𐭬 (Wahrām)), from Avestan 𐬬𐬆𐬭𐬆𐬚𐬭𐬀𐬖𐬥𐬀 (Vərəθraγna, smiting of resistance, victorious), from Proto-Indo-Iranian *vṛ-tra-ghnas (smiting the cause of obstruction). Related to Sanskrit वृत्रहन् (vṛtrá-hán, smiter of vṛtra, i.e. smiting the cause of covering/hiding). In pre-Islamic Iran mythologically conflated with the Persian Gulf narrows (which oral tradition considered to be a remnant of the "obstruction" that was overcome by Verethragna), hence in Iranian folk etymology incorrectly identified with the toponym "Bahrain." Compare also Old Armenian Վահագն (Vahagn).
