In Iran, as well as in other West Asian nations or ethnic groups in the region, from which the word originated, nân (Persian: نان‎) does not carry any special significance, as it is the generic word for any kind of bread.

Naan is a leavened, oven-baked or tawa-fried flatbread which is found in the cuisines mainly of Western Asia, Central Asia, Indian subcontinent, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Caribbean.
