Because of its strategic position, this river is considered to be a joint boundary between Iran and other countries such as Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Republic of Nakhichevan. Moreover, from long ago, this river has had a mythological reputation. In the Armenian language the word Araz is known as “Arax”, in the Persian language as “Aras” and in the Azeri language as “Araz”, all of which have the same root in the Aryan language.
The below letter is received from one of our site visitors who has given a very interesting and valuble comment about other meaning of word “Araz”:
” I came across your “website” today and I have enjoyed browsing the content.As I was browsing around, I noticed the section about the “name Araz”. My nick name is Araz and I am originally a Turkmen from Iran, residing in Virginia, USA. The name Araz is a common name among Turkmen of Iran. It is usually used as a prefix, such as in my name (Araz-dordi, Araz-galdi, Araz-berdi and so on). Having said this, If I may suggest one more meaning
of Araz to your description of “the name Araz” in your site. In Turkmen it means “the month of Ramazan”. Those who are born in the month of Ramazan will have a prefix of “Araz” at the beginning of their names. So, since I was born in the month of Ramazan, I carry the name Arazdordi (meaning = born in Ramazan).
