Russian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

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 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.
