Bonab (Persian: شهرستان بناب) is a county (shahrestan) in the East Azerbaijan Province in Iran. The capital of the county is Bonab. The county is located on the east side of Lake Urmia. At the 2006 census, the county's population was 125,209, in 31,921 families. The county has one district: the Central District. The county has one city: Bonab.
The main language spoken is Azeri. The name of the city, however, is like most other towns in East Azerbaijan, of the Old Azari/Tati origin, meaning "down river" which the town at the foot of Mt. Sahand is. The district of Sarab in the same province, stands for "water source, or "river source." The proposal that the name is of Turkish origin, meaning "1000 home" is baseless and an innuendo.
