Land of the Aryans

The most well known place known as the Land of the Aryans is Iran. (Iran literally means Land of the Aryans.)

The people called the Ossetians (who live in what is today part of Russia and Georgia) call their home Iron. Which is a variation of Iran. This name also literally mean Land of the Aryans. Genetic studies done on the Ossetians show a kinship to Iranians -- Irani -- and thus support that they are indeed primarily of Aryan stock (and not Caucasians or some other people who simply took on an Aryan Language.)[1]

Although the people of Republic of Azerbaijan speak a Turkic Language, history and genetic studies show that they are Aryans (and kindred to the Iranians and the other Aryans). Before their culture was changed from their original Aryan culture, they called their land Aran. (Which also is a variation of Iran.) This name too literally means Land of the Aryans. (Before having their culture changed, these people called themselves Arani.)

The ancient people know as the Alans (or more correctly as the Alani) are believed to have called their territory Alan. (Which too is a variation of Iran.) This name also literally mean Land of the Aryans.
