As Jazz_Girl already explained, that thing over the "ñ" isn't a tilde; this is a tilde "´", and it's only for vowels.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

Re: David's Last Name

Well Nalbandian is a common armenian name...most armenians' last names end with an "IAN" and few with "YAN". Look at another tennis player, Sargisian, he's also armenian.

As for pronounciation, I would say nahl-bahn-dee-ahn...

Hope this helps!

smiles,
Donna

Now, how's that for a spelling lesson. I guess, Jazz, she was expecting that in pig latin or vulcan-or chicken scratch.

Sorry, I did not make my question clear.

I meant: Has anyone seen David himself write his own last name?

I just asked this because so many newspaper columns, television shows,
message boards and tennis tournaments gave opinions different
from this board.

However, thanks everyone for the information. I'll pass it on to
other people who also have been asking about his name.

Different opinions about what? About the pronunciation of his last name? (which you've already taught us.) Or about how his name is spellt? (which I presume there's only one way.) :retard:

Oh, you mean does someone have an autographed copy of his name? I don't, but i'm sure that he spells it NALBANDIAN....

Re: David's Last Name

Hi Jazzy...
It's also known that Andre Agassi comes from armenian heritage although he has never really proclaimed it (like David did in Wimbledon 2002). Andre's father apparently dropped the "IAN" (Agassian) to make it sound more american. Not that your interested but Cher, LOL!, Cherilyn Sarkissian, is also half armenian (her father's side).

cheers,
Donna

Re: David's Last Name

Yup, thanks Donna!! Come to think of it, Agassian does sound a little funny to me.. Andre Agassian... Hm...

Good Luck Juan Carlos Ferrero, Novak Djokovic, David Nalbandian, Richard Gasquet!
