"Iranian Calendar" is okay IMHO, but I like the "Persian Calendar"
better for the name of the calendar system, since it covers more
countries. In Iran we use the Iranian subtype of the Persian calendar,
and in Afghanistan the Jalali subtype is used. I don't know about

Fortunately in .NET it is possible to define subtypes for a calendar
system provided that they use the same algorithm but differ in day
names, month names, date patterns and so on.
