In English, is the language spoken in Iran called Farsi or Persian?

My Iranian friend claims that his language is called Farsi, not Persian, but my argument is that even though it’s known as Farsi in the language itself, in English, it would be called Persian. After all, you wouldn’t say to a Mexican, "Hey, do you speak Espanol?"

Any ideas?
