Etymology of the name ABIRAD.
Meaning of the baby name ABIRAD.

  

ABIRAD.  Armenian name, said to mean "miserable," but I've not yet been able to confirm this.  If correct, it is almost certainly the same as Hindustani 'abirat ("grief, weeping"). (A Dictionary, Hindustani & English, Forbes, 1866)

    The Scythians quitting the territories of Thoros, advanced to the territory of Kharpert, where they laid siege to the strong fortress of Zovk, then in the possession of the great Armenian chief Abirad Pahlavuny, grandson of Gregorius Magistrus, and father of Gregory and Nierses Shnorhali.  They, however, were unable to capture the fortress, and at length were obliged to raise the siege, and set foward to other expeditions.  But Abirad exposing himself on the walls, was wounded by an arrow, and died.  His son, Basilius succeeded him in his possessions... (Armenia and the Armenians, Isavertenc, 1878)
