Tag : Armenian last names

Armenian last names (family names) bear the suffix -ian, -iants, -ants,
-iantz, -yan, -ents, -entz, -ontz or -ouni.

The difficulty of the host countries in understanding the Armenian sounds may have caused changes to the Armenian last names. The spoliation of properties and destruction of documents during the Armenian Genocide may have caused the alteration or the loss of the Armenian last name.
