Meaning & History
Derived from Middle Persian warāz meaning "boar" combined with Middle Persian dādan "to give". For the latter element, also compare Old Persian dāta, which can mean "law" but also "gift" as well as "gave, given" (as past tenses of the verb dadātuv "to give, to put"). As such, the name roughly means "to give boars" or "giver of boars". This name was borne by a 4th-century Roman client king of Arsacid Armenia.
