Meaning & History

From Pashto پېښور (Pekhawar) ultimately derived from Sanskrit पुरुषपुर (purushapura) meaning "city of men", from पुरुष (purusha) meaning "man, person" combined with पुर (pura) meaning "city". Alternately, it could be from Persian پیش آوردن (pesh avardan) meaning "to bring to the front, to advance". This is the name of a city in Pakistan.
