My mom named me Hengameh, but I don't know why. I think she just liked this name.


 

The Origin of My Name

Hengameh Mirzay from Iran


My first name is Hengameh. I looked in the dictionary to see what it means in English and I found several meanings.

They are: tumult, uproar, and racket. For example: to raise a tumult or to create an uproar.

My mom named me Hengameh, but I don't know why. I think she just liked this name.

My name is an original name because most of the names in Iran are Arabic but mine is not.

Many names in Iran are Zoroastrian. Zoroastra was a religion in Iran before Islam, so that's why a Zorastrian name is original.
