Xosrow (Persian: خسرو - Xosrow‎; Middle Persian: Khosro.png - Xosrow; Avestan: Haosrawa; Greek: Chosroes; Latin: Cosroe), also spelled Khosrow and Khosrau, is the name of a Persian mythical character. He is known as Kawi Haosrawa in the Avesta, with the meaning "reputed" ("of good repute").[1]

A number of other rulers of Persia, Armenia (Խոսրով Xosrov) and the Western Asia are known by this name, and in some times and places it has come to mean "king" or "ruler", hence khosrau (king).
