Asked my ex the same thing. She said - for one it sounds cooler than all the other ones. She didn't have a second.

From my understanding Persian is an ethnicity and Iranian is a nationality? For example, in Iran you have the Persians, and other groups such as the Azeris and the Kurds, etc. hopefully someone who knows can chime in and verify

You are correct. Iranian is a nationality, Persian is an ethnicity.

I used to think "Persian" was offensive (had not actually known any), until early twenties I met this guy from Vancouver (chinese) who said "that's what they call themselves".. up to that point I thought it was the equivalent of calling east asians "Orientals" ...

but who else does this?
when someone asks me where are you from?
i dont say i'm arab
i say i'm egyptian
you dont say i'm latino when you are mexican

i think its the iranians who left iran after the revolution that use the term persian, as they want to distance themselves from todays iran
