In 1770 the Russian army captured Turkish city of Bender, the Russian soldiers stormed the city administration, the Pasha was killed, officials and finally the Secretary Pasha, who had a baby in her arms, the soldier raised his gun and a child, but the Armenian embassy employee (the Armenians Russian has not been touched since the Orthodox Armenians) shouted: 'Do not touch him! this is my son! it is the Christians'.
He lied, but it saved the life of the infant, who became a father in the future by Ivan Aivazovsky. Armenian fathered a child and called him Gayvazovskim, from the Turkish word 'Heisenberg' – Secretary-General. So Aivazovsky got his name and family legend to boot. Think about that hides your name.
