Are gypsies from armenia?
No. The Romani (who often labelled incorrectly as Gypsies) are originally from the Afghanistan/Pakistan region, not Armenia. However, they passed through Armenia on their way to Europe.

The term "gypsy" has several overlapping meanings. Initially the word was used to refer to the Romani people, who first appeared in England around the beginning of the 16th ce…ntury. Although in certain contexts the word is still used to describe the Romani, it also describes those in English-speaking countries who live a lifestyle similar to that of the Romani, or as a translation of equivalent words in other languages.

Gypsies are a tribe of Indian people from the Punjab and Rajasthan region, who migrated to Europe a few centuries ago. The still keep the Indian culture and music alive in eve…ry country they go in their style of playing, dancing and singing. At one time it was mistakenly thought they were of Egyptian origin; hence the name "gypsies" which they regard as insulting. In some parts of Eastern and central Europe, Roma and only Roma were allowed to be kept, bought and sold as slaves - for example in parts of the Austrian Empire and the Balkans. Linguistic and genetic information leads scientists to believe that the origin of gypsies, or Roma (Romanies) lies in northern India and that they migrated to Europe in the late Middle Ages. ______ Gypsy is a slang word for Roma. Please click on the Related Links to read about the history and origins of the Roma. The Dom peoples of North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia are also referred to as 'gypsies' and may have a connection with the Roma. ______ The Gypsies, more properly known as Rom or Romani, are a group of people that emigrated from India (possibly in the modern Indian state of Rajasthanto) no earlier than the 11th century. The name is applied to other non-Rom peoples who are itinerant trades people. The name Gypsy is believed to originate as a corruption of "Egyptians" the supposed origin of the Rom. ______ In the late Middle Ages, Rroma migrated from India (as proven by the fact that their language, Rromani, is directly descended from Sanskrit). Upon their arrival in Europe, it was believed for some reason that they came from Egypt, which is where the crude exonym "Gypsy" comes from. Rroma endured centuries of persecution in Europe. The reason they were for a long time nomadic was not through any choice of their own but because of legislation that stopped them from living anywhere permanently. You might be confused by all the stereotypes out there. Bear in mind: Rroma are people. Just like you and me. Living ordinary lives in an ordinary world. Don't judge or assume before you meet, and let individual people, not racisms inherited by society, color your opinions.

The native Armenian name for the country is Hayk'. The name in the Middle Ages was extended to Hayastan, by addition of the Iranian suffix -stan (land). The name has tradition…ally been derived from Hayk (ÕÕ¡ÕµÕ¯), the legendary patriarch of the Armenians and a great-great-grandson of Noah, who according to Moses of Chorene defeated the Babylonian king Bel in 2492 BC, and established his nation in the Ararat region. The further origin of the name is uncertain. The exonym Armenia is attested in the Old Persian Behistun inscription (515 BC) as Armina ( ). Ancient Greek ÎÏÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¹Î¿Î¹ "Armenians" is mentioned by Hecataeus of Miletus (476 BC). Xenophon, a Greek general serving in some of the Persian expeditions, describes many aspects of Armenian village life and hospitality. He relates that the people spoke a language that to his ear sounded like the language of the Persians. According to the histories of both Moses of Chorene and Michael Chamich, Armenia derives from the name of Aram, a lineal descendent of Hayk.
Armenia is located on the continent of Asia, is referred to in several instances in the bible as the near east (NOT middle east!) and her most famous Mt. Ararat is also mentio…ned several times as her ancient name of Urartu. Armenia is half way between Asia and Europe and Armenians are referred to as Indo-Europeans, as is the Armenian language. Sometimes they are referred to as Eurasian as well. Armenia joined the EU in the mid 1990's and are part of the United Nations. Ancient Armenia's borders were the caspian sea, the black sea and the mediterranean sea. Ottoman Turks reduced Armenia's borders as a result of the Armenian Genocide to less than 20% of her original borders, and Turkey enclosed our beloved Mt Ararat within it's borders. Many of Armenia's ancient churches were destroyed by the muslim turks and to defy Russia, they placed a large portion of muslims to the east of armenia and gave them this land as Azerbaijan in 1920, encouraging them to destroy what was left of any remnants of Armenia, rename the cities and create new history on our ancient land.
Armenia's official currency is called dram. 1dollar~370 drams.
Last night I was walking down the main road and was approached by the scum (gypsys). They asked for a reach around, which I gave them promptly; followed by a sharp patting dow…n across the anal area. That is why i am so fond of the scum (gypsys). I offer a similar service for gay men across the north west. my name is Sammy gwinnett if you ever need me :)
