Reply to: Ghevondian by John
Armenian, denoting descent from a man named Ghevond. This is from the Greek name Leontios. The intrusive V occurs in other names with the EO vowel combination, such as George, Armenian Gevorg. The GH for L occurs in other names from the Greek, such as Nikoghos (Nicholas) and Aghexander.
