Etymology[edit]

From Parthian nʾz (nāz-, to take pleasure, delight; exult, triumph). Compare Manichaean Middle Persian nʾz (nāz-, to take pleasure, delight; exult, triumph), Persian ناز (nāz). These are perhaps from Proto-Iranian *nāiz-, from the same Proto-Indo-European source which yielded Russian нега (nega), нежный (nežnyj).

Verb[edit]

նազիմ (nazim)

  1. to pout, to be dainty, to give oneself airs, to stand upon ceremony, to make some difficulty, to be fussy, very particular, disdainful, overnice, to turn up one's nose, to simper, to smirk, to want asking, to hesitate
  2. to play the bully, to set up for a beau, to boast or brag of, to pique or plume oneself
  3. to put on the airs of a lord
