Introduction

The phrase Persian Mythology refers to the collective religious, spiritual, and metaphysical beliefs held by the ancient inhabitants of the land that we now refer to as Iran. The stories that comprise Persian Mythology are over thousands of years old, with many having only been preserved via oral storytelling or in the form of poems and songs. One can learn as much about Persian history as they can about Persian cosmology should they choose to learn more about Persian Mythology; some of the most famous stories from this particular pantheon include tales like the Shahnameh (the Book of Kings) and the story of Amir Arsalan.

Persian Mythology Dog Name Considerations

One reason that a person might give their dog a name inspired by Persian Mythology would be having a personal connection to the subject at hand: growing up in a household that was familiar with Persian Mythology or befriending, dating or marrying, or working with someone who has the sort of connections we're talking about. Creatures like manticores and griffons are featured in Persian mythology, so you may unknowingly be connected with the Persian Pantheon in more ways than you may have initially believed. We'll be sure to list a few names in Arabic and Sanskrit down below as well as the Anglicized versions of certain figures' names.  

Another reason a person might want to name their dog after a character or creature from Persian Mythology could be that they're just interested in World Mythology as a whole. If you're a big fan of World Myth then the subject at hand might really resonate with you; as the cultures that actively paid tribute to the Persian Pantheon are among some of the oldest in the world, it's believed that a number of Persian stories and customs inspired the likes of Greeks and Egyptians. As such, you'll see some familiar faces popping up in Persian Mythology as you read on.
