Russian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Shortening of хачик (xačik), from a common Armenian male given name Խաչիկ (Xačʿik), diminutive of Խաչատուր (Xačʿatur), which means “given by cross” and is composed of խաչ (xačʿ, cross) + տուր (tur, something given), from տալ (tal, to give).

The stereotyping of the name Khachik after Armenians perhaps is explained in part by the very popular character of товарищ Хачикян (Рубик-джан) from the 1977 Soviet movie Mimino, played by an Armenian actor Frunzik Mkrtchyan.
