Etymology[edit]

From Old Armenian կարգ (karg). Compare especially կարգին (kargin, well, nice). However, Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani gives an explanation in his dictionary Lek'sikoni Kart'uli („ლექსიკონი ქართული“) that "the word 'kark'i' (კარქი) means 'order', 'row' (რიგი) in Armenian and some writers being inattentive have misspelled it on some places by writing 'kargi' (კარგი) instead. 'Kargi' means 'good' (კეთილი), meanwhile, 'kark'i' means 'order', 'row'". Compare also the pronunciation of the Udi: кӏарк (ḳark).
