You're probably right and you will find most Armenians in California(by far and quite a few in the LA and Fresno areas), Massachusetts, NJ, Michigan, Illinois and NY. There are some in major cities in a few other states too. A very interesting history: Armenian American - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

By the way, does your last name end in -ian?

Italian on my dads (Sicilian), Irish on my moms.

Look at my name BPerone201. Most of my school years I was known as Brian PepPERONI or B-Roni
I look more Italian than anything.

It could be worse. I once knew a girl named Pepper, and she dated a guy whose last name was Oney. True story.

Thankfully, it didn't work out.

American. No, not Native American. The people who gave me my surname were here before the Revolution. So, I don't really see myself as a hyphenated American, nor am I an immigrant.
