The old name of Armenia was Hayk.
Archaeological evidence, such as a cuneiform inscription, indicates that an Urartian military fortress called Erebuni (Ô·ÖÕ¥Õ¢Õ¸ÖÕ¶Õ«) was founded in 782 BC …by the orders of King Argishti I at the site of current-day Yerevan, to serve as a fort and citadel guarding against attacks from the north Caucasus.
The fresh air, the peaceful situation, the culture, the people.
The native Armenian name for the country is Hayk'. The name in the Middle Ages was extended to Hayastan, by addition of the Iranian suffix -stan (land). The name has tradition…ally been derived from Hayk (ÕÕ¡ÕµÕ¯), the legendary patriarch of the Armenians and a great-great-grandson of Noah, who according to Moses of Chorene defeated the Babylonian king Bel in 2492 BC, and established his nation in the Ararat region. The further origin of the name is uncertain. The exonym Armenia is attested in the Old Persian Behistun inscription (515 BC) as Armina ( ). Ancient Greek ÎÏÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¹Î¿Î¹ "Armenians" is mentioned by Hecataeus of Miletus (476 BC). Xenophon, a Greek general serving in some of the Persian expeditions, describes many aspects of Armenian village life and hospitality. He relates that the people spoke a language that to his ear sounded like the language of the Persians. According to the histories of both Moses of Chorene and Michael Chamich, Armenia derives from the name of Aram, a lineal descendent of Hayk.
Armenia IS in Asia! Thanks!
Armenia is located on the continent of Asia, is referred to in several instances in the bible as the near east (NOT middle east!) and her most famous Mt. Ararat is also mentio…ned several times as her ancient name of Urartu. Armenia is half way between Asia and Europe and Armenians are referred to as Indo-Europeans, as is the Armenian language. Sometimes they are referred to as Eurasian as well. Armenia joined the EU in the mid 1990's and are part of the United Nations. Ancient Armenia's borders were the caspian sea, the black sea and the mediterranean sea. Ottoman Turks reduced Armenia's borders as a result of the Armenian Genocide to less than 20% of her original borders, and Turkey enclosed our beloved Mt Ararat within it's borders. Many of Armenia's ancient churches were destroyed by the muslim turks and to defy Russia, they placed a large portion of muslims to the east of armenia and gave them this land as Azerbaijan in 1920, encouraging them to destroy what was left of any remnants of Armenia, rename the cities and create new history on our ancient land.
