Note on Spelling

According to the Iranian Chamber Society, the correct spelling of the city in both English and Persian is "Ray," (with an "a" vowel sound) though variations in spelling also exist.[3] The city university also uses the spelling "Ray" ("Azad University, Shahr-e-Ray")[4] as does the Encyclopædia Iranica published by Columbia University.[5]
