But can you please call our language "Persian" instead of "Farsi" when speaking in English? The less often Westerners hear the word "Persian", the less likely they will be to remember to say "Persian Gulf". They just keep calling it "The Gulf" and eventually "The Arabian Gulf". It has become so bad that some people don't even know what "Persian" is anymore. The name of a language is the most common thing associated with a nation. There must be some connection between "Persians" and the gulf calleld "Persian Gulf". Otherwise, what claim would we have to it? Our country is called Iran, not Persia anymore. We are called Iranian, not Persian anymore.

The only connection we have left to our "Persianness" is the name of our language. So why call it Farsi? Can you please change it in this post and in the title? Please tell others to use Persian instead of Farsi too?

"Farsi" is incorrect to refer to the language spoken by the people of Iran when talking in english. An educated person such as the author of the above article should not make this kind of mistake. When speaking in english and refering to the language spoken by Iranians you call the language Persian not anything else. THis issue has been discussed numerous times but unfortunately some people are still ignorant to it.
