Meaning of the baby name ARSHAVIR.


ARSHAVIR.  An ancient Armenian name of Persian origin, possibly composed of arsha "venerable" and vir "understanding," hence "wise and venerable."

... Arsham, the brother of Tigranes, on the seizure of his nephew Ardavazt by Antony, assumed the crown of Armenia; but was obliged by the Romans to flee into Persia.  On the death of Antony, Arshavir king of Persia, at the head of his army, came into Upper Armenia, drove out the Medes, and restored Arsham to the throne of his ancestors.  Arsham then proceeded into Lower Armenia and defeating the Romans, obtained entire possession of that country.  But shortly after Upper Armenia was given to Arshavir king of Persia, in consideration of his late good services... (Armenia and the Armenians, Isavertenc, 1878)
