It's Iran. We always referred to Iran as Iran and never as Persia! Persia is what other nations named us, therefore not the real name of our country.

I can't stand it when people say 'oh i'm persian'....i'm sorry? what?
Iran and Iranian are NOT dirty words for me. It's a shame some Iranians feel it to be so. I blame it on the Western media, but regardless of what the media says and whether you agree with your country's government of not, you should always be proud of where you come from.

It's very simple, in a very east to understand language Persian is an ethnicity, while Iranian is nationality, we have a huge variety of different ethnicities in Iran and it's quite unfar to call the entire nation "Persian" , this may one day divide our country!

BTW I just added a poll to this thread!
