in Persian wikipedia has been written that "chem comes from the word kimia which is a native PERSIAN name"!->"واژه شیمی خود داستان درازی دارد. ریشه این نام در واژه کیمیا است. خاستگاه واژه کیمیا از زبان پارسی باستان است"

and in Eng wikipedia has been written that "kimia is a arabic name"!!!!!!!=>"Chemistry (from Arabic: كيمياء Latinized: chem (kēme), meaning "value")"



kimia is my name any way!
