ABBAS
From Arabic abbas which means "cruel", "dreadful", "pugnacious". Hyubshman connects this word with Assyrian word awa(aba) which means "father". The Greek form of this word is abas (in Mar Abas Katina Assyric agreement which was used by Armenian historiographer Movses Khorenatsi).This name became spread among the Armenian during the Arabic Compaign and it has no connection with the word aba. Abas also means "lion"which many nationalities use as a proper name. Nowadays this name is still used.
