This blog post will be about 13 tips for working on your Armenian last names goals. It is an important goal to master the pronunciation of family’s long-held surname so that you can share it with pride at gatherings and events.
We’ll list some word pairs below which are commonly mispronounced or misspelled in English: Carlitos – Carleeta (stress falls on second syllable) Fermanian – Fermoniaan (stress falls on final syllable). We’ve also found a few other tricks online for those who need help remembering certain sounds; they’re listed below as well.
Tip #13: One way to remember how to say “Aghase” correctly
– I know this is an odd thing to say, but if you want your name to have a more Armenian sound, it might be time for you to start going by something else.
– The reason being that many Armenians last names end in “ian” or “yan.” This may seem like the most natural thing for these types of names because they are part of our culture and history, but after a while people get confused as to which “John” or “Mary” is actually on their caller ID. If John had gone by Smith instead of his actual surname, he could probably answer every phone call without having any confusion whatsoever!
– Like with anything in life there will always be pros and cons to change, but if you feel that it’s time for a change then I think this is an excellent idea.
– It also doesn’t matter how we pronounce the last name because what’s important is how others will hear and spell your Armenian surname properly!
– This means even though people might have trouble pronouncing “Aghase” like “I was,” they’re still going to spell my last name right when someone searches on Google or finds me in Facebook.
– Obviously there are exceptions where changing one’s family name could be problematic, so please discuss with those close to you before making any rash decisions. But just know that this can work wonders for some Armenians who struggle with their names being mispronounced or misspelled.
– In the meantime, here are 13 counterintuitive tips to help you crush your Armenian last names goals!
— Tip #13: Get a hyphenated name. This is an excellent way to make sure that both of our given and family surnames will be in full view when we introduce ourselves. For example, “My professional surname is Aghase but my personal last name is Manoukian.” Or if one parent has a different surname than the other (like I do), then they could say something like “I’m Maral Aghase Banayan with Mona” instead of listing their first and middle names individually for every introduction. While this may not seem as straightforward at first, it’s a very clever way to keep the two surnames in mind when you’re introducing yourself.
— Tip #12: Pick your own nickname. This is less common among Armenian last names, but if we want to combine our first and family name into one word or phrase that can be easier for people to pronounce then this is an option! For example “My professional surname is Aghase but my personal last name is Manoukian.” Or if one parent has a different surname than the other (like I do), then they could say something like “I’m Maral Aghase Banayan with Mona” instead of listing their first and middle names individually for every introduction. While this may not seem as straightforward at first, it’s a very clever way to keep the two surnames in mind when you’re introducing yourself.
— Tip #11: One or both of your last names can be shortened if they are too long for easy pronunciation or writing! For example “My family surname is Sarkisian but I shorten it as ‘Sark’.” Or even just shortening one word to make things simpler like “I’m Dan Banayan with Mona.” This might seem counterintuitive at first because we think that people will be confused about our full name (or where we come from), but what this does is allow us to have an easier time explaining who were are and how we got here. Having more than one option allows us some flexibility so no one is ever left out.
Tip #12: Mix up your last names! For example, if you were born in the United States and have one Armenian name and another surname from a different country, or maybe mixed-Armenian (like “Dan Sarkisian”), then it’s totally okay to switch them around when introducing yourself. It can be good for people who want to keep their family heritage alive without feeling like they’re limiting themselves by only sticking with one side of the divide – say someone wants to use an Americanized version of their first/paternal name but still incorporate some aspects of Armenia into that identity as well.
— Tip #13: Don’t underestimate how much having two last names means for others’ perceptions of you.
Tip #13: Don’t underestimate how much having two last names means for others’ perceptions of you.
For example, if someone is born with the Turkish surname “Ozalp” and an Armenian first name like “Armen,” it may be assumed that they are more Turkey-oriented than Armenia or vice versa – even though this can change depending on their cultural background (or where they grew up). This could also hold true in reverse when a person has one Armenian surname but was born in America, which would make them Americanized but not necessarily pro-American. The point here is to think about your choices before settling on anything so that things don’t get too complicated down the line! Make sure you think about all of the implications that having two last names can have on your identity.
Tip #12: Take advantage of opportunities to use both surnames in tandem if you want to make a statement about your heritage and upbringing.
For example, an Armenian woman named “Armenia-Agelerian” may choose to take her husband’s surname as well (signifying being married) or keep it for professional/career purposes after marriage – this is up to personal preference! But if she chooses not to change her name at all, people might assume some things based off of what they’ve seen before when someone had one last name but chose not to marry their spouse. If you are setting out with a goal of being an Armenian-American woman with one last name, you’re going to need a plan for how to answer questions about your identity – and what they might mean. Tip #11: It’s very common in Western society for couples of the same sex who have children together or marry each other not both take on their spouse’s surname (usually the father does). This isn’t specific to Armenia! If this is something you are considering, think carefully about whether it will be confusing for others when explaining why only one person has taken another as his/her legal husband/wife. In some cases where there may be a potential confusion over marital status due to names, partners may choose if they want their family members’ surnames hyphen
