Khosro (also transcribed as Khosrow or Khosrau) (Middle Persian: Khosro.png Xosrow; Greek: Chosroes; Latin: Cosroe) is the name of a mythical Persian leader in the Avesta of the Zoroastrians known as Kavi Haosravah, with the meaning "famous", "of good repute".[1]

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