Iron people

The Iron are a subgroup of the Ossetians. They speak Iron dialect, one of the two main dialects of the Ossetian language. The majority of Irons are Eastern Orthodox with Muslim minority. Their endonym is etymologically related to the other Iranian designations like Irani and Alani, and English Aryan, all ultimately from Sanskrit ārya ('noble').
