such a thing as an artificial nose, he is reminded of Tycho Brahe, 16th century

Danish astronomer, who lost part of his nose in a duel, and was fitted with a

golden one.)


Figuratively, it can be construed to mean someone who has no sense of smell, or even

one with low self esteem, as nose was considered a symbol of pride.

The Tchakedjians are originally from Aintab and settled in Cairo, Egypt after the genocide. They were the family that built the Cairo Armenian Evangelical Church (where I got married in 1980). The family was quite famous because of their business (selling the Swedish Primus equipment - gas lamps & burners)

But the more interesting story is that their original surname was Buchakdjian but as the family lore goes the patriarch Nerses changed it to Tchakedjian to shorten it.

how the name came about. His ancestors from Van were advisors to royalty, and

the symbol of their sagacity was the long hair that they displayed. Thus they were 

referred to as talamazi, which, it is conjectured was a truncation of talarmazi,

where talar, in Armenian, is deemed as verdant, and maz as hair. In many cultures

long hair was a sign of nobility. The Parthians and Persiacs of high rank wore 

long flowing hair.

TUNGURIan (T) Nurhan Becidyan has very kindly offered the following information:

“If I am not mistaken the origin of this name is Tıngıryan (the jot without the tittle, or

the undotted I in Turkish). It is the surname of a very prominent Armenian Catholic

family whose members had been high Ottoman functionaries. One of them, Tıngır Yaver

Pasha was the minister of Posts & Telegrams. They even had built two Armenian

Catholic Churches in Istanbul, Sourp Hovhannes Mgrdich in Yeniköy, and Sourp Andon

in Tarabya.

In Turkish, tıngır is used together with mıngır as tıngır mıngır to imitate the sound of

rolling metal pieces. It also means money. My guess is that the family were

originally sarrafs (bankers, money lenders) and the name might come from that.”
