Speaking about the origin of the Armenians, there is a need to shed light on “Armenian”, “Armenia”, “Hay”, “Hayastan” ethno-toponyms. It is known that the Armenians identify themselves with “Hay” ethnonym and with “Hayastan” toponym, the coun¬try of their residence. Outside Armenia, these people are known as “the Armenians”, “Armenin”, “Vir¬men” etc, and “Armenia”, “Armeniya”, “Virmeniya” and so on as the country.
