In the mid-1920s, Iran abolished honorary titles and honorifics and required people to adopt family names. H. E. Chehabi describes the public debates surrounding what was an important state-building effort. He traces the legislative measures and decrees that constituted the reform and explores the surnames Iranians chose or invented for themselves.
