SANAMian (Ab/U/Hi/P) Idol, but also graven image. It has been used in the sense of

sweetheart or beloved. Emil Sanamyan, editor of The Armenian Reporter, 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

of Ara Keghetsig. According to the legend, Semiramis (Shamiram in Armenian) had

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

resurrection.

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.”
