Carl Tchilinghiryan (27 February 1910 – 8 May 1987) was a German businessman, who co-founded the coffee house Tchibo.
In order to facilitate the pronunciation of his Armenian name for future Tchibo customers, Tchilinghiryan changed the spelling of his name to "Carl Tchiling-Hiryan".
Tchilinghiryan is buried at the Ohlsdorf Cemetery in Hamburg, Germany, in a family tomb together with his parents Karabet Tchilinghiryan (21 July 1869-12 November 1927) and Erna Tchilinghiryan, née Petersen (18 May 1887-12 July 1959).
