Etymology[edit]

From Latin Ararat, from Ancient Greek Ἀραράτ (Ararát), from Biblical Hebrew אֲרָרָט(ʾărārāṭ), in Genesis 8:4. Corresponds to Akkadian 𒆳𒌵 (Urarṭu), the name of the Eastern Anatolian plateau which in Classical Antiquity became known as Ἀρμενία (Armenía) (in Hecataeus of Miletus, ca. 476 BC).

The place names in modern Armenia and the given name are from Armenian Արարատ (Ararat).
