Etymology[edit]

Possibly from SumerianUruk” or “Warka” (Biblical “Erech”) region in the south of ancient Iraq. Medieval Arabic uses ‘Iraq’ as a geographical term for the area in the south and center of the modern Iraq. Some Arabic sources say that Iraq comes from عريق (ʕaríːq, deep-rooted), from عرق (ʕirq, root), while others say it is from Middle Persian's erāq (lowlands), due to historic rule from Iraq's plateau-situated neighbor, Persia.
