    Iranian Names?

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by daemon➂, Jul 2, 2008.

    This question on names probably gets asked a lot, so I appologize if I'm beating a dead horse (I know, I know, cliches are evil).
    Anyway, can anyone think of good names for someone Iranian? I want something real, but something that isn't stereotypical. For future reference, is there a site that has names by nationality? Thanks.:D

    *That's* funny.

    That was actually the name I was going to use...well, the first name, at least; I knew it was too predictable, though. Thanks.

    Ali alone is good too as it's commonly used by Shia Muslims and most Iranians are Shia.

    20-000names.com and babynology.com. Google them, the address may be slightly wrong.

    Mirbagheri, Mona
    SHAMS, SHAHRAM
    taheri, pegah
    Mir Mohammad Sadeghi, Nikoo
    Nassajian, Rouhollah
    Farahmand, Ehsan
    Mofid, Mohsen
    kazemi, taha
    PAKYAR, Afshin
    Rahmati, Reza
    sattari khavas, sourena
    Salehan, Mohammad
    asadiyan, mohammad
    esmaeily, hamed
    Pourang, Nima

    I'm being completely serious here, name your guy Muhammad Ali the black prize fighter and have him box everyone he meets and you will have yourself a story which I shall read every word of.

    I don't think that would work. That's the complete opposite of what I want my story to be about. Okay, Chickidy: after I right this story, I'll write a sequal just for you. :D

    It's kind of sad. I understand Muhammad Ali converted to Islam and everything, but Cassius Clay is the coolest name ever and he had to go and change it.
