I’ve run into her for quite sometime.
Who is she?
Obviously not this Gohar.

Here in Los Angeles, there's a "cultural critic" named Stepan Partamian who's always going on about how we shouldn't promote Sayat-Nova because his music isn't "purely" Armenian. I'm glad people in Armenia are paying no attention to him.
Sayat-Nova (Armenian: Սայաթ-Նովա) (born as Harutyun Sayatyan (Armenian: Հարություն Սայադյան on 14 June 1712, Tiflis – died 22 September 1795, Haghpat), was an Armenian poet, musician and ashik who had compositions in a number of languages. His adopted name Sayat Nova meant "Master of Songs" in Persian.
Or is it from the Arabic Sayyed=sir, lord?
SAYAD =From Arabian sayyad "hunter". Sayat is one of thee forms of this name (Sayat-Nova). The corresponding surname is Sayadyan.
STEPAN =Greek name Stefanos "wreath"** which is in use since IV c. till now in the forms Stepanos, Stepaneh, Stepan, Tepan, Tepo. The corresponding surnames are Stepanyan, Tepanyan and Tepoyan.
LILITH =Is a new name, which came from A. Isahakyan's "Lilit" legend, according to which Lilit was the first woman, created by God from flame. It is in use now.
