As the Arabs occupied Armenia at one time, I am sure that there are Arabic words in the language, of course this varies by dialect. Armenians seem to use "ghurban" and the allah phrases (mashallah,yallah,inshallah) pretty universally, though I guess they are less used in Armenia.

hayvan, qyoufta (for Gegharkuni kololak)

Actually if you know the meaning of the word "qir" in arabic, you can guess what Arabkir means. Or the name Qir-a-koss or Kirakos, if you translate it from arabic it becomes a very "nice" name.

Guys none of those words except Hayvan (animal) are Arabic. Actually Hayvan is no doubt very Arabic

Farsisteve jane ziz,
I can immagine that a lot of people think that Ghorban (sacrifice) is from Arabic, I read about it, it's not Arabic it comes from Persian Korpan, Korpan is actually a quite InoEuropean word, Just remeber that Korp- is related to corp-us, which means body in Latin.

From arabic:
Djennat: Trakht, yetem.
Kazel: megheti, sirerk.
Tumpuk or T'mpuk.
Vaght bah): a moment.
