Meaning of the baby name NISHAN.

  

NISHAN.  Armenian name, derived from the vocabulary word nishan, meaning "sight," as in the kind of sight or sights of a rifle gun. (Leaflets from the Notebook of an Archaeological Traveler in Asia Minor, Sterrett, 1889)

... A Circassian told me that in the mosque where he attended the Imam spoke very strongly, urging that hitherto the Christians of this country were a class separate and apart from Mohammedans, but that it was so no longer.  Now when war summoned the Mohammedan youth to the army, Garabed and Nishan (Armenians) were with them in the ranks.  When contributions were called for by the central government, it was very largely the Armenians who responded with their gifts.  There was now really one country with one united people... (New Outlook, v.104, 1913)
