93 Armenian Baby Names With Meanings

Are you looking for names that reflect your heritage? Or do you want a distinctive and unusual name from a different culture, something that’s as diverse as a country’s landscape? Then you should look at our list of Armenian baby names.

The Armenian baby names bring to mind the ancient nation whose vigor and strength overcame the tyranny, genocide, terror, and Stalin’s Great Purge. Being a nation that has a history dating back to 2000 years B.C., Armenians have a rich list of personal names. While most of these names are borrowed from Bible, and other cultures and civilizations, a lot others are names of elements found in nature. Modern Armenian last names or family names end with the suffix յան (yan) or եան (ian). Some Armenian last names also have the suffix լի ([li]) preceding the -յան/-եան suffix. A thing to note is that these suffixes can also be found in Persian and Turkish names. The surnames can also be derived from profession, location, noble rank, personal name of the ancestor, or personal characteristics.

We do agree that most of these names are best confined to the Armenian community, but some deserve wider circulation.

Below, MomJunction has compiled a list of popular and traditional Armenian baby names with meanings to assist you. Have a look!
