I agree with Lopsided. The Egyptians eventually called it a Tarba. To invaders it is simply a head covering from the Persian word 'Sar' meaning head and 'Poosh' meaning cover becoming 'Sarpoosh'. The Tarbush's correct meaning is 'The Crown of Life'. It also represents an Imperial ruler and is a symbol for learning. Thus most leaders and learned men through out history wore a Tarbush or a Fez
