Ancient ?[edit]

Did the creator of this category want to mean the "Medieval Persia" ? Normally the term "Ancient Persia" means Achaemenids etc. Takabeg (talk) 04:42, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

I think the best name for this category is Category:Poets from Persia. As of Reza Shah reign, "Persia" was officially renamed to "Iran", so in the west "Iran" refers to Modern Iran (i.e. Islamic Republic and Pahlavi dynasty) and "Persia" refers to Qajar dynasty and earlier. The word "Ancient" is redundant. Americophile 05:16, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
