Persian has been a medium for literary and scientific contributions to the Islamic planet and the Western. It has had an influence on certain neighbouring languages, very the Turkic languages of Central Asia, Caucasus, and Anatolia. It has had a lower influence on Arabic and different languages of Mesopotamia.

For five decades before the British colonization, Persian was popular as a 2nd code in the Indian subcontinent; it took prominence as the code of culture and knowledge in many Muslim courts in India and became the "official language" under the Mughal emperors. Only in 1843 did the subcontinent start performing company in English.

Persian, the more popular name of the code in English, is an Anglicized shape derived from Latin *Persianus < Latin Persia < Greek Πέρσις Pérsis, a Hellenized shape of Old Persian Parsa. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the expression Persian appears to have been initially chosen in English in the mid-16th century. Native Persian speakers call it "Fārsi" (regional name) or Parsi. Farsi is the arabicized shape of Parsi, due to a deficiency of the /p/ phoneme in Standard Arabic.

According to Pejman Akbarzadeh, "... In English, though, this code has usually been recognised as "Paudiobookersian" ('Persane' in French and 'Persisch' in German). But various Persians migrating to the West (very to the USA) after the 1979 revolution continued to employ 'Farsi' to identify their code in English and the term became commonplace in English-speaking nations." "Farsi" is experienced frequently in the linguistic literature as a name for the code, utilized both by Iranian and by foreign authors, and is preferred by some.However, The Academy of Persian Language and Literature has announced in an official pronouncement that the name "Persian" is a bit more appropriate, as it has the longer custom in the western languages and greater expresses the part of the code as a mark of cultural and nationwide continuity.
