Agathangeghos

Armenian - Male

This is something that most Armenians wouldn't name their kids. The name comes from an alleged author of a history of St. Gregory (patron saint of Armenia) written after Armenia's conversion to Christianity in AD 301. The name seems to come from the Greek words 'Agathos Angelos' which means 'Holy Angel or messenger.' Most scholars believe it is a pseudonym and that Agathangeghos is a reference to the 'good news' which was sent to Armenia, but for those brave enough to name their child this, the correct spelling would be 'Agathangeghos', with the 'h' after the 't' (optional) and with the option of switching 'gh' with 'l.' Pronounced: A-ga-TAN'-ge-ghos
