Gender: Masculine
Origin: Persian Арман Արման

The name is most likely derived from an Old Persian male name meaning “ideal, wish; aspiration” or “destination.”

It has entered several Central Asian languages and in Kazakh it refers to “dream; hope” and is used as a male given name.

In Armenia, it is the 5th most popular male name and it is often argued to be derived from the ancient Armenian root ar (sun) or (Armenian man), however, it is most likely a borrowing from the Persian.

It is currently the 29th most popular male name in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
