So there is a bit of a backstory to my question here. My grandfather's family immigrated to America in the early 20th century from the Ivano-Frankivsk region of Ukraine. However, there have been some things about this side of the family that have always been mysterious. I've attached a picture of my grandfather and as you can see he does not look like a typical Ukrainian. A distant cousin located there stated he looked more like someone who came from the Caucasus as opposed to West Ukraine. A recent DNA test my father and indeed showed genetic markers matched to the Caucasus region. Also, his mother, my great grandmother's family name was listed as Balisyn on her immigration papers and her marriage certificate. This surname is not Ukrainian, nor closely related to any Ukrainian surnames.
Later I was doing some unrelated historical research on the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth and stumbled onto to the fact that during 14-1600's there was a large amount immigration into the Polish controlled territory of Western Ukraine by Armenians coming from the Kingdom of Cillicia after it fell to the Turks in 1375. Ivano-Frankivsk's population was about 10% Armenian and the community's church still stands to this day. As time went on most members of this community eventually assimilated into the local population. At this point I've begun to think my great grandmother descends from this population
What I am wondering is does my great-grandmother's family name sound like an archaic version of an Armenian surname? What were older Armenian naming conventions like?
