From Middle Persian 𐭠𐭩𐭥𐭠𐭭 (ērān), from Proto-Iranian *aryānām (of the Aryans), genitive plural of *arya- (as in Old Persian 𐎠𐎼𐎡𐎹 (ariya-), Avestan 𐬀𐬌𐬭𐬌𐬌𐬀 (airiia-), Ossetic ир (ir, Ossetian)). Compare Parthian 𐭀𐭓𐭉𐭀𐭍 (aryān) and Sanskrit आर्य (ārya).

𐭠𐭩𐭥𐭠𐭭 (ērān) came to refer to the lands in which Iranians lived during the late 3rd to early 4th centuries. Prior to that time it signified people/culture (i.e. the Iranian nation), rather than geography. The antonymic 𐭠𐭭𐭩𐭥𐭠𐭭 (anērān) (whence انیران (Aniran)), originally meaning "non-Iranian", underwent a parallel development.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The word is sometimes used without a definite article as in English: Iran, in Iran. In this case, the genitive is always Irans, for example Irans Hauptstadt – "Iran's capital".
  • More commonly, however, the definite article is used with the name: der Iran, im Iran. In this case, the genitive usually is des Iran, although des Irans is also correct: die Hauptstadt des Iran(s) – "the capital of Iran".
