Sounds horrible...a rash.

I like the name, possibly because I know a cute boy with the name. And it's pronounced by him as are-ash, not a-rash.

I had a feeling that people would misinterpret the pronunciation of this fine name; it's "ah-RAHSH", not "uh-RASH". It sounds nothing like "rash".

I've got a cousin named Arash. In contrary to the pronunciation above, it's AHR-ash, not ah-RAHSH. We're Iranian, so I'm pretty sure our pronunciation is correct, but I'm not 100% sure.

That being said, I don't love the name, but I don't hate it either. It's kind of unusable in English-speaking countries due to the whole 'rash' thing, but I don't think my cousin has ever been teased for it!

Written as آرش in Persian. I'm indifferent about this name, but would never use it in an anglophone country.

Such a nice name, with historical meaning as I found in Persian names site:
This name is one of my choices for my baby.
