ARKUN (T/A) According to Aram Arkun, currently the editor of

AGBU’s Literary Quarterly ARARAT, this is his reply to my question about the

derivation and meaning of his surname: “My Sepastatsi grandfather’s name was

originally Yesai Karageuzian. He is said to have traced his genealogy back 400 years to

Van, with clergy in the family tree. Unfortunately, the information is lost to us. My

grandfather was a physician in the Turkish army during WW I. For obvious reasons he

changed his name to Ismail Shevket. His last name was probably formally changed

during the name law in the 1930s to Arkun.. My grandfather was an amateur philologist,

and I perceive a correlation between Shevket and Arkun, which latter can be construed as

both Armenian and Turkish. Shevket, in Turkish, means majesty, pomp. Arkun, in

Armenian, is a form of arka, a term used to describe a king or royalty. Thus, Arkun (or

Arkuni) would mean, of the royal court, or, belonging to the king. In Turkish, as far as I

know, Arkun has two meanings: soft, gentle; the name of a Mongol Ilkhanid ruler

Arghun (the gh sound changed to k in modern Turkish.) For the foregoing reasons, there

is only one family group with the name Arkun. As an interesting aside, I would mention

that during the 1930s name change law, those who had changed their names earlier now

had to register their names. Others were forced to take on new names. For example, a

couple on my mother’s side went together to the same registry official. One was given the

name Karabulut, black cloud, and the other Siyahbulut, also black cloud, siyah having

been borrowed from Persian. The official was apparently playing a cruel joke on the

couple by assigning different last names with the same meaning. They had a great deal of

difficulty in trying to get the same last name for both husband and wife.”

ARNAVOUDian. (Al) Eddie Arnavoudian, who is a regular contributor to “Groung”

on the Internet, has the following to say about his family name as it was handed down to

him: “My dad’s side of the family were from an area around Istanbul called Arnavoudkoy

or something like that. The area was named after it was settled by emigrants from

European Albania called Arnavouds. The Arnavouds were divided in their religion, one

part Christian, the other Muslim. How they became Armenianised or why our family

adopted this name if they were not actually Arnavouds will remain an eternal mystery.”

ASHOUGHian (A/Ab) Troubadour, term applied to a class of wandering minstrels. who

sang Turkish ballads; lover, in love. Dr. Herand Markarian has very kindly provided the

following information on the provenance of the root word to the name.

“The root of the word "asshuk" is the Arabic "ashk"= love; its derivation "aashuk" means

lover. It has nothing to do with singing or minstrel. My take on the evolutionary path is

the following:

The Armenians, during the Arab domination from 8th to 10th centuries - when there were

no Turks in the area-, along with many adopted Arabic words, adopted the word

"aashuk." And since we actually don't have the throat sound "aa," we replaced it with the

simple "ա"․ Furthermore, the last letter in "aashuk" is again a throat sound, which we

don't have in our language; we converted it to the Armenian "ղ" sound; thus we have the

word "աշուղ"․

We also added the "singing" component to the word and gave the word the minstrel meaning, because all songs were love-songs.”
