SANAMian (Ab/U/Hi/P) Idol, but also graven image. It has been used in the sense of
sweetheart or beloved. Emil Sanamyan, former editor of The Armenian Reporter, now discontinued, has the
following to add concerning his family surname:
“From what I know the last name derives from mid-19th century family matriarch
named Sanam, who lived in Mets Taghlar in Karabakh. Growing up the only
Sanamyans I have ever known were my relatives. In Mets Taghlar there is a
section of this large village called Snamunts Tagh where my distant relatives still
live. But with proliferation of the web I also found unrelated Sanamyans,
including those coming from Tbilisi, Nor Bayazit/Gavar and Sheki/Ismailly
districts in north-central Azerbaijan.
The surname is unusual since it derives from a female name. I remember looking
through a 1970s National Geographic special on Armenians - you might
remember it - and there was a caption for a woman named Sanam performing a
ritual at Sevanavank. The name is archaic in the Caucasus, but you occasionally
can still encounter it in Iran and Turkey, I've met younger Sanams or Senams
from both. “

SHAMIRAMian (As) Name of Assyrian queen, who, according to legend, was enamored

developed a passion for the handsome Armenian King and offered to marry him. When
Ara refused, Semiramis, with the armies of Assyria marched against Armenia. During the
battle Ara was slain despite her orders that he be captured alive. When the Armenians
advanced to avenge their leader, Semiramis disguised one of her soldiers as Ara and
spread the rumor that the gods had brought Ara back to life, convincing the Armenians
not to continue the war. Reputed to be a sorceress, Semiramis placed his body so that her
sacred dogs could lick him and restore life while she prayed to the gods to raise Ara from
the dead. The word lick in Armenian is lizel, thus the name Ara Lezk, the licking of Ara,
became associated with the location. During the 19th century, it was reported that a
village called Lezk, near Van, traditionally held that it was Ara's place of attempted

SHARESHian (A/P/ Black silk (weaver/vendor).
This is one of those Armenian surnames whose meaning is impossible to
determine without any clues. Fortunately, we do have a clue with which to start,
but still,some detective work is in order. There is only one family with that name
who resided in the Dikranagerdtsi community of Union City, New Jersey. Two of
the five children were told by their father, when asked, that the name meant
“black silk.” This seemed rather far-fetched when you consider the terms
customarily used in Armenian, Turkish, Persian, and Arabic. Silk, in Armenian is
medaks, although it is borrowed from the Greek metaxi.
In Turkish it is ipek; In Persian and Arabic, abrishum, ibrishim, and kazzaz.
Then, by luck, an entry was discovered in an English-Armenian dictionary
published in Beirut, Lebanon in 1970 by Mesrob G. Kouyoumdjian. In this
comprehensive volume was the word sharmagh, which neans silk sieve. So, the
original Armenian word for silk was undoubtedly shar. Remember that the
Armenian word for silkworm is sheram, and for sericulture, sheramapoudzoutiun.
So far so good. Now, what about the rest of it?
Esh in Armenian, and eshek in Turkish mean donkey. Esh in Turkish means one
of a pair, such as a husband and wife.And an eshik, in Turkish can mean
something that is load bearing, such as the bridge on a violin, or a large stone slab
used for a threshold for the entrance to a house. Neither of these usages seems to
bear on the subject at hand.
Then in a comprehensive English Turkish dictionary by Fahir Iz and Hony, was to
be found an alternate word for black in Turkish besides kara. It was a word the
Turks borrowed from the Persians, which is siyah. Here, then, is the connection
that yielded the secret. The name was very probably originally Sharesiyahian,
which over time became Sharesian, and further modified to Shareshian. Voila!
The father, Nigoghos, or an ancestor was undoubtedly engaged in the silk industry
which flourished in Dikranagerd.
P.S. The Shareshians were prominent members of the Union City “Arsen” AYF
chapter. Ann was a perennial member of the executive board, and the brothers
Boubo and Dick, were players on the famed Union City basketball team. Dick’s
son, John, is a professor of mathematics at Washington University in St. Louis.
His younger son, Steven, is a producer of award winning TV and movie films,
such as “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “John Adams,” and “Game Change.”
