Etymology[edit]

Via other European languages, ultimately borrowed from Azeri Azərbaycan, itslef apparently from Persian آذر (âzar, fire) and پایگان (pāyegān, protector, guardian), i.e. “guardian of fire,” apparently a reference to Zoroastrian practices. In Latvian, the word was made into a feminine 4th-declension noun, following the usual pattern for country names.
