The name Persia is actually a Latin derivation used mainly by Westerners to describe the region roughly equivalent to that of present day Iran.

In truth during the rise and fall of the Persian Empire the land was known to its people as ‘Aryanam’, which is equated to the current “Iran” in the proto -Iranian language.

During the reign of the Sassanids it became Eran – meaning “land of the Aryans”.
