Atusa (Persian: آتوسا‎) is a Persian female name commonly found in Iranians and Persian-speaking Afghans. Alternative spellings are: Atoosa, Atousa, or Atossa.

The name is a modern learned borrowing from the Grecized name Atossa, who was the daughter of Cyrus the Great and wife of Darius I in the Achaemenid era.
