Origin and Meaning of the Name Vartan


Armenian - Male

Pronounced: VAR'-tan. While the actual name might mean something like 'giver of roses,' this hardly does justice to one of the bravest and fiercest knights of Armenian History, the great St. Vartan Mamigonian, commander of the knights at the Battle of Avarayr in 451 AD. To give you an idea of how culturally important Vartan is to our people, just as the Italians have the Knights of Columbus, we have the Knights of Vartan.
