225 is the North American telephone area code for part of southern Louisiana, including the entire nine-parish Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area. The area code was Louisiana's third area code, and the first new area code in the state in forty-one years. Area code 225 split from area code 504 during 1998/99. The numbers 2-2-5 correspond on the alpha-numeric keyboard to the letters C-A-J; a nod to the area's Cajun heritage.

The area code has become part of the regional identity for the Baton Rouge metropolitan area, to the extent that there is a local news magazine named 225 magazine published by Louisiana Business Inc.[1]
