HOVSEP.  Armenian form of biblical Joseph (q.v.), meaning "addition" or "Jehovah will add."

... In 1908 Rev. Hovsep (Joseph) Keossajian settled in Lawrence, Massachusetts, and established a chapel in St. Mary's Church.  He ministered to the spiritual wants of the Armenian Catholics at Boston, Cambridge, East Watertown, Newton, Lynn, Chelsea, and Lowell...
