Azure

Azure is the name of a color, used to describe the color of the sky on a clear blue day and is another name for the lapis lazuli. It comes from Old French azur via Arabic lāzuward لَازَوَرْد (lapis lazuli; azure) ultimately deriving from Persian lāzaward (لاجورد) which seems to have gotten its name from a place. Azure is also a surname.

Origin: Persian
