KEVORK (Գէորգ).  Armenian form of George (q.v.), meaning "farmer, husbandman." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... The monastery of St. Mary Peribleptos, at Psamatia, was built in 1301 by the Emperors Romanus III. and Argyropulos.  Until 1643 it was in possession of Greeks, but during the reign of Ibrahim I. it is said that a corpulent young Armenian girl was presented to the Sultan, who was very fond of fleshy women, and through her influence this monastery was taken away from the Greeks and given to the Armenians.  In 1782 it was destroyed by fire and it was rebuilt by the Armenians under the name of Surp Kevork (St. George); it is also called Soulou Monstir on account of the existing underground cistern... (The Ottoman Dynasty, Hidden, 1912)
