What is the Original Name of Hinduism and what is the meaning Hindu ?

What is the Original Name of Hinduism and what is the meaning Hindu ?

SANATHANA DHARMA ( = The way of Life ) or RIGHTEOUSNESS FOREVER was the original name of Hinduism. It was Persians who invaded India during 6th century B.C. who gave the name HINDUISM meaning the RELIGION OF PEOPLE LIVING NEAR RIVER INDUS.

In Persian the letter H and S are pronounced almost the same so they mistook the word SIND [ Sanskrit name for Indus] to H and then started calling HINDUS and HINDUISM.
