Gender: F Meaning of Parastoo: "bird" Origin of Parastoo: Iranian, Persian

The name Parastoo seems utterly exotic to the Western ear and may always be so, with that odd (to our sensibility) "too" ending, sometimes varied to Parastu. It actually means "swallow," as in the type of bird. Pari or Parisa would make easier imports.
