ALEPPO, SYRIA – An Armenian couple from Syria just had their first child, and decided to name him George.
“We wanted something original,” the happy parents said. “Something that sets him apart from other boys in the community.”
“The problem with Armenians is that we often have the same names that keep coming up,” the father said, “and we get a lot of misunderstandings.”
At publishing time, the child’s parents decided to go with “Georgik”, to really stand out.
