KOOBATian (P/T) Koobat or kubat in Turkish means vulgar, coarse; common (accent on way of speaking). However when questioned closely on the historic pronunciation of his family name, Gregory Koobatian acknowledge that it was originally Khoobatian. This puts an entirely different face on it. Khub in Persian music good, an at in Turkish means horse. When the Persian word entered Turkish (probably in Ottoman times) the “kh” sound was preserved. But with the modernization of the Turkish language and alphabet “kh” was replaced with “h”. Thus you would get hub, which passes for love in Turkish Arabic, and Persian. The foregoing suggests two possibilities for the name:

The owner of good or fine horses, or a lover of horses, as is the case with PILIBBOSian (Phil hippos).

KURKYASHARian (T) Forty cheers.

KURMAJIan (T) Small grain or corn merchant;
+
KURKYASHARian (T) Forty souls. Nurhan Becidyan has provided the following additional information:
 +
 
 +
"My source, who knows the family that lives in Australia (and who also edited Manuel Kirkyasaryan's memoir in Turkish),
 +
 
 +
told me that apparently they were a very large family and 40 people would all eat together around the table, so the name."
 +
 
 +
Stepan Kerkyasharian of Melbourne, Australia has kindly furnished the following information on his family name:
 +
 
 +
 
 +
"The Kerkyasharians are a very large family and they are from Hajin which is now named Sayinbeyli. In fact I was told by a Kerkyasharian who was in his late 80s about 40 years ago that Hajin was founded by three
 +
 
 +
people Two of them brothers. They sought refuge for whatever reason in this mountainous area which was almost impossible to access and welcomed others seeking refuge to establish a settlement. The two brothers are
 +
 
 +
the forefathers of the Kerkyasharian clan. Some of what I am writing from now on can  be sourced in various publications such as the history of Hajin and various magazine articles published by the Hajin
 +
 
 +
Hayrenagtzagan Miyoutyun in Argentina about seventy years ago.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
There was a very large Rock just on the outskirts of where the bulk of the settlers lived, where the Kerkyasharian clan established their feudal home. Apparently more then forty members of the family lived there and
 +
 
 +
sat down for dinner together. Hence they were called the Kerk-yashars in Turkish meaning the ‘forty living together,’ Which then evolved into Kerkyasharian.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
Kirkiasharian is the family name of the late Arpi Muradian, wife of Vazgen Muradian, Armenian composer.

KAHian See KEHEyan

KAHAUMJIan See KOUYOUMJIan. This misspelling of Kouyoumjian is another

eample of the familiar Ellis Island hatchet job perpetrated on Armenian names. But, a

case can be made for such variances resulting from the differences between Eastern and

Western Armenian As a conjecture, the following scenario is plausible. When an Eastern

Armenian-speaking person bears the name Kouyoumjian, he writes the name with the

spelling of the letter J (hee) for the y sound instead of (yech) as is done in Western

Armenian. Then, when a Western Armenian-speaking person sees the name

Kouyoumjian n spelled with the letter J (hee), he pronounces it Kouhoumjian.

KALSAHAKian (T/H) Kal, a variant of kel, is defined as “bald headed,” and Sahak, a

truncation of Isahak, borrowed from Hebrew, Yitzhak (Isaac), is defined as “he will

laugh.” Hrach Kalsahakian, among other callings, is the editor of Azad-Hye Middle East

Armenian website, and a journalist and member of Dubai Press club.

In response to our inquiry here is what he had to say about the history of his

surname.

“I am originally from the Ekizluk village in Kessab area in north east

Latakia in present-day Syria. My village is still inhabited by Armenians and I do

visit then at least once every year or second year. My family is named after Sahag, my

great-grandfather. Most probably he was bold so in Turkish he was called kal. In Arabic

it was reproduced sometimes as kul, and in Armenian it was written as kel (in Kessab, we

have Kel-Yaghoubian, Kel-Boghossian, etc.). I prefer red he to change the kel to kal, and

combined it with ‘Sahak’” and came out with Kalsahakian (which is unique when you

Google it.)”

KHERDian (T) Truncation of kherd-kach: break and run. The Kherdian sub-clan traces

back to a common ancestor. Here is what Charles (Garabed) Hardy of Racine,

Wisconsin has to say about the history of the name:

“The story about our family name, Kherdian, is the following:

The name of our entire clan was Bakaian. Our part of the clan became Kherdian

as a result of the following event: My paternal grandfather, Garabed Kherdian, was a

carpenter by trade. One day a Turk from a neighboring village came to Khulakugh (a

village near Kharpert City) and asked Grandfather Garabed to make and hang a door for

him. When the job was completed, Grandfather Garabed went to see the Turk to get paid.

The Turk told him that he did not have the money that day and that Grandfather

should come back another day. Each time Grandfather went to see the Turk to get

paid, he got the same answer. Finally, he was convinced that the Turk had no intention of

paying him.

So Grandfather Garabed came up with a plan. Late one night, he along with his brothers

and cousins went to this Turkish village. While everyone was sound asleep, they chopped

down the door and fled. As they were fleeing, the Turks woke startled and started

screaming “kherduh khashduh” which in Turkish dialect means “destroyed and fled.”

Since that time the name of our part of the clan became Kherdian.”

KOOBATian (P/T) Koobat or kubat in Turkish means vulgar, coarse; common (accent on

way of speaking). However when questioned closely on the historic pronunciation of his

family name, Gregory Koobatian acknowledge that it was originally Khoobatian. This

puts an entirely different face on it. Khub in Persian music good, an at in Turkish means

horse. When the Persian word entered Turkish (probably in Ottoman times) the “kh”

sound was preserved. But with the modernization of the Turkish language and alphabet

“kh” was replaced with “h”. Thus you would get hub, which passes for love in Turkish

Arabic, and Persian. The foregoing suggests two possibilities for the name:The owner of

good or fine horses, or a lover of horses, as is the case with PILIBBOSian (Phil

hippos).To which Gregory and Nadine (nee Sarajian) add the following comment:

We are especially pleased that a “lover of fine horses” would marry the descendant of the

Sarajians, the “saddlemakers.”

KORDian gnamol. Gin, as in wife or woman, and mol as in moli, fond Gortian. Nothing

with Kord. In our book of names published in Yerevan in 2000 by Dikran Avedisian, we

find Kortyan (we would spell it Kordian). The rendering of Kordyan in Avedisian's book

is along Eastern Armenian lines. Although the first letter is keh, the fourth is diun, which

is pronounced more like a t sound. The derivation is Turkish, but borrowed from Italian,

where presumably cort is an abbreviation of corti or a truncation of corteggiamento,

which means courtship. In that same book we find Haydostyan, which is defined as

kiugh Garsi marzi Oltii ogroukoum. Kordoian is not a familiar name to us, but we have

heard of the name Kordolian, which we don't have any data on either.

But, the suffix li suggests a native of a village named Kordo. And of course, the

Armenian rendering would be Kordo without the li, or Kordotsi, plus the ian.

KURKYASHARian (T) Forty souls. Nurhan Becidyan has provided the following additional information:

"My source, who knows the family that lives in Australia (and who also edited Manuel Kirkyasaryan's memoir in Turkish),

told me that apparently they were a very large family and 40 people would all eat together around the table, so the name."

Stepan Kerkyasharian of Melbourne, Australia has kindly furnished the following information on his family name:


"The Kerkyasharians are a very large family and they are from Hajin which is now named Sayinbeyli. In fact I was told by a Kerkyasharian who was in his late 80s about 40 years ago that Hajin was founded by three

people Two of them brothers. They sought refuge for whatever reason in this mountainous area which was almost impossible to access and welcomed others seeking refuge to establish a settlement. The two brothers are

the forefathers of the Kerkyasharian clan. Some of what I am writing from now on can be sourced in various publications such as the history of Hajin and various magazine articles published by the Hajin

Hayrenagtzagan Miyoutyun in Argentina about seventy years ago.


There was a very large Rock just on the outskirts of where the bulk of the settlers lived, where the Kerkyasharian clan established their feudal home. Apparently more then forty members of the family lived there and

sat down for dinner together. Hence they were called the Kerk-yashars in Turkish meaning the ‘forty living together,’ Which then evolved into Kerkyasharian.


Kirkiasharian is the family name of the late Arpi Muradian, wife of Vazgen Muradian, Armenian composer.
