A word in Farsi

Hello all!

I also posted this in multilingual but have not gotten a response. If this double-posting is frowned upon, I am terribly sorry and please forgive me.

My character is in Persia in the 1850's. He is French but runs with a group of Persian bandits. I am looking for a name they might refer to him as. I was thinking something along the lines of "White One." I was looking for something that might not be downright derisory, but perhaps mocking. So if there is a word that they might use that fits that, that can work too as opposed to White One. If region could make it more specific, he's fairly close to Tehran. Also, I'd need that work in phonetics, not in the alphabet of the language itself.

Thank you all so much!
