Etymology[edit]

From Ancient Greek Θοργομά (Thorgomá), from Hebrew תֹּגַרְמָה (Thogarmā). The correct nominative is Թորգոմա (Tʿorgoma); the spelling Թորգոմ (Tʿorgom) was mistakenly back-formed from the genitive Թորգոմայ (Tʿorgomay). The Biblical “House of Togarmah” probably referred to the Proto-Armenian kingdom centered around Melitene. By identifying Togarmah with the ancestor of Armenians Moses of Chorene was either following biblical commentators or he knew a local tradition.
