    Interesting, thanks for this Homie.

    I wonder – is there a movement in the country that favours going back to the name Persia?

    People still called the Soviet Union ‘Russia’ before 1989, though Iran seemed to be in more widely accepted usage.

    ِDear PPGG
    Changing Persia to Iran is relevant only in foreign languages. Iran is not a new name for Iranians.
    Persis/Pars/Fars is a province, and the country as a whole was always Arayanam/Iran.
    More of the etymology here.

    I don’t think there is any relevant movement to change this, though some regret this disconnection, for cultural reasons, such as Prf. Yarshater.

    PPGG,

    Personally speaking, I think returning to name “Persia” will obscure the struggles thaht “Iran” has been going through in its history of past half a century. As a people, Iranians are ever proud and connected to the 7 thousand years of civilization lived on the land that houses them now (unfortnately, most don’t recall more than 2500 years of it; partly because that is when the “Occident” touched Iran with Alexander the Great, and thus it became part of the western histry; and partly because the Pahlavi regime attemped a changing of the calendar from the Islamic-Solar calendar, to a strictly Persian one, marked by Achamenid’s dynasty; and partly because the remains of the older civlizations are not as preserved and thus nt a part of tourist attraction-visit Met. in NY to see that pre-achamenid section of Iran is just as large as the post-Aassanid one).

    But Iran is a forward-looking society, and commendable for all that it has acheived in spite of the past thirty years of unjustice, inflicted upon it by both the internal and the external forces.

    Still, way to go, but that will happen only when both Iran and the rest of the world learn to trust eachother.

    that Aasanid should be Sassanid. Sorry! (not only am I partly literate in English, but also I have a bad keyboard and poor motor system that makes me prone to typos)

    I like the link of E cards and stamps, nostalgic, but very much part of the changing wolrd.
    Great post!

    Homeyra and Naj,

    Appreciate the thoughtful responses and the links, very informative. There’s much more to this than I thought and I’m glad for the opportunity to learn more.
