Conan O’Brien Takes Assistant Sona Movsesian to Armenia

Dear Conan O’Brien, Sona Movsesian, Team Coco, and Crew,

I would just like to say thank you to you all for making the trip to my homeland Armenia and for taking Sona Movsesian who had never been to Armenia. That is such an incredible and beautiful gesture that you made for Sona and that flair was definitely felt throughout the Armenian community of the world. Not every boss in the world would do those beautiful and thoughtful things for their friends/workers and that there tells a lot about a person’s character and personality and Conan, I have a tremendous amount of respect for you and your crew, not only because you took Sona to Armenia, but you as a person who demonstrates quality, who is dedicated, and put your employees first. That is a rare occurrence.

You have no idea on how much we Armenians appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. Now, a lot more people know about us and that is something that I/We will forever be grateful for.

It is so awesome on how the #ConanArmenia show was presented to the world. Thank you for adding humor into the show, which made me laugh hysterically. I have watched the episode at least 10 times by now, if not more. I just cannot get enough of it. Sona is a beautiful person who is so full of life and I would love to meet you Conan and Sona someday and tell you in person.

As the show was airing, I was sending out live tweets and explaining to what was going on and I was so excited about it. I must have sent hundreds of #ConanArmenia hashtags throughout the world.

On behalf of all the Armenians in the world including myself, thank you for introducing Armenia our homeland to your viewers and fans, thank you for taking the time to travel thousands of miles to be with Armenians, getting to know and embrace our culture, language, heritage, making Armenian friends, putting us on the map and as well as addressing an important and integral part of our history about The Armenian Genocide, for saying the word Genocide, visiting the Genocide memorial with Sona in the end of the show really put a sweet and touching tribute and for recognizing what had happened to 1.5 Million Armenians who were displaced, massacred in 1915, and for letting people know about it.

When Sona was explaining about her family and what had happened in the village we lost of Sepastia which is now in Turkish lands, really made me all the more emotional as I am sure the Armenian community of the world. I started to cry too with Sona and I felt her feelings about it.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for doing this. We love you Conan, we love you Sona, and may you all have continued success with your show in Los Angeles or wherever life takes you.

What The Definition of My Name “Talin” is: (Pronouncing it Taleen).

Hello everyone, I am here to write to you today about what my name Talin really means. A lot of people have been asking me this and today I decided to write to you all about it. My name comes from a city in Armenia and there is a church after my name as well. Talin is a town in the Aragatsotn province of Armenia with a population of 5,371 people.

People with this name are presumed to be balanced and receptive to co-operation. They are the ideal persons for partnership and always look for peace. It is important and imperative for them to learn how to speak up, or they may be taken advantage of. Which is so true. I tend to have the habit of being taken advantage of emotionally and mentally and Sometimes I can get stuck on too many details and have feelings of loneliness. It is so true. I have been doing a lot more research on my name and the meaning of my name lately. A lot of people want to know the origins of my name and the definition, the personality of my name.

(Talin is one of the oldest residential areas in the region, confirmed by evidence dated back to the 2nd millennium B.C. (among others bronze swords). During the 2nd century, Talin is mentioned by the Greek geographer Ptolemy, which he calls Talina. Excavations in the vicinity of the Talin Cathedral, near the hill, have revealed ancient building materials as well as receptacles.)

My name is pronounced “Taleen” – In high school and going to school, at work in the past, I have always been called “Talen” or my name would be spelled Taline with an E at the end, and there are so many ways to spell my name, like Talyn, Taleen, Talene, Talina, Telen, Talinee, and so many other ways to spell my name. I love my name so much. A lot of people I meet, they ask my name and I said I am Talin, and they said wow, that is a beautiful and unique name that I never heard of. Of course when you’re not Armenian. When I do meet Non-Armenians. I know I get a lot of different pronunciations when it comes to my name, and I really don’t like correcting people because I know it’s not nice, but I like my name pronounced “Taleen” and in Armenians they pronounce my name “Taaleen”.

Our names give us a sense of individuality, no matter if it is common, rare, unique. All names have a significant meaning and it gives us our identity in this world of existence. I’ve been doing extensive research on my name and among other peoples names. I love research and reading on interesting things.

Well, that is all about my name. What does your name mean? Do you have a common, rare or unique name? What does it mean to you? would love to hear your stories. All the best.
