It's actually pronounced differently, with a short a and the emphasis on the 2nd syllable. So although it may seem that way, they don't even sound very similar.

I know this is a real name, but it looks like an attempt to make Perry feminine.

This is our daughter's middle name, and it's sweet, spunky, fun feel really fits her. DH is Iranian, and I'm American... we found this was the perfect cross-cultural middle: a simple but sweet Persian name that is intuitive and simple to pronounce for English-speakers (Pari, like Pari). I also love the story of the pari, faeries who are mentioned in Persian mythology (even in the Shahnameh). They are beautiful, devouring perfume and other luxurious smells for sustenance, and fighting against the evil dev (demons). If you're planning to live in Iran, you might consider Paria (we ruled out because it sounds a bit like pariah), or the common Parisa. However, if you're planning to live in the West, this short name packs a lot of punch...
