Etymology[edit]

From Middle Persian 𐭧𐭥𐭫(𐭧)𐭱𐭩𐭲(xwar(x)šēd, sun). Compare Avestan 𐬵𐬎𐬎𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬑𐬱𐬀𐬉𐬙𐬀(hvarə-xšaēta-, bright sun (an epithet)).

The first part is cognate with خراسان‎, the name of a province in eastern Iran (since the sun rises in the east), and the second part (equivalent to شید(bright) in modern Persian) with Old Armenian աշխէտ (ašxēt).[1]
