    Mehrdad (Persian: مهرداد‎;   (help·info)) is an Persian (Iranian) male given name.

    ''Mehrdad'' derives from Middle Persian Mihrdat, a theophoric name meaning "Given by Mehr." ''Mehr'' in turn derives from Avestan Mithra, the Zoroastrian divinity and hypostasis of covenant.

    In present-day Iran, the name Mehrdad is also retroactively applied to several historic figures that appear in western literature as Mithridates, a hellenized or philhellenic form of the Old Iranian name.
