434 modern Armenian surnames have Azerbaijani origin and it is proved with the not only the language fact but also with historical arguments. To confirm our view we can show the opinions written on page 112-114 of the book of “Armenian surnames” published in 1987 in Yerevan. In the book, the author writes: “Only 26.3 percent of Armenian surnames appeared from original Armenian language, the rest 194names were taken from the Persian, 113 fromTurkish, 111 from Arabic, 60 from Greek, 54 from Jews and 44 languages were taken from other languages” . 20 percent of Armenian surnames is associated with the Christian religion. “

 

 

Russian researcherTronskiy Alexander writes: “Being my mother’s maiden surname “Agabekyan” always surprised me, but I have never came across “aga” and “bey” words in any Armenian sources.This word was written like Agabey in all sources until XIX century. Aga Persian, Bey is Turkish origin word. This proved to me again that Armenians surnames are fake. http://www.proza.ru/2013/05/15/1526 ”

 

 

Studies show that a lot of well-known Armenian families stole a number of our names as Jamal, Jalal, Khan, Sardar, Nariman, Nasib, Islam, Mirza, Madat, Mardan, Murad, Osman, Qasim, Shahbaz and appropriated them. Some of Armenian historians, poets, scientists confess that there are some words and names were taken from the Azerbaijani Turks. For example, the founder of modern Armenian literature,writer Khachatur Abovyan confesses: “Turkish (Azerbaijani) entered our language so muchthat the songs, poems, proverbs are called out in Turkish (Azerbaijani) …

 

 

… our people have learned a lot of Turkish words and use them to this day … “.
“Armenian took the Turkish name because they live among Turkish people and they used them as surnames afterwards. Armenians don’t have anything, they appropriate everything from other nations.
According to experts, there are other reasons to receive the Turkish names as the surnames. One of them is ancestors of some Turkish surnamed Armenianswere Turkish. Therefore, these Armenians took grandfather’s name as a surname. For example,great-grandmother of Melikyan had a child from a Turkish man named Malik so his surname remained Melikyan.

I should note about “Jan” surname endingthat the Yezidi Kurds, Udins and other minorities have surnameswith such ending. During the Soviet era, beforethe Udins carried surnames “jan” ending as the Armenians. Head of the Udin Community Alek Danagari said in an interview that they have never had connection with Armenians: “The feature which makes us closer to the Armenians is just belonging to the same religion-Christianity.

 

 

Armenians belong to Gregorian, but we belong to the Catholic branch of Christianity . According to Alek Danagariturn over of Albanian Church to Armenian Church by the decision of Russian Sinod in 1836 was a step towards annihilation of Udins: “Armenians have always pressured on us. They wanted to make obey the Albanian church to the Armenian Grigorian Church. Our alphabet, scripts were destructed by Armenians. ”

 

 

In the beginning of 90’s Udins had to replace “jan” ending with the “ ari” and “ov”, “yev”. They refused “jan” and accepted the endings we mentioned above.
