Margaryan, not "Markarian"[edit]

The English transcription of Armenian words is needed here instead of a transliteration. Please move the article to Markarian. Thank you.

There is no reason to use the "Markarian" spelling. Most of Armenian sites use "Margaryan" themselves, for example Margaryan's official site itself : [1]. Eastern Armenian (the only form of Armenian language official in the Republic of Armenia) has a pronunciation different from Western Armenian spoken by the diaspora from the Ottoman empire. In Eastern Armenian, գ is pronounces rather "g" and կ is rather "k". In Western Armenian, it's the contrary. The name of every Armenian citizen must be transcribed following the Eastern pronunciation. Švitrigaila 11:23, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
I have created a redirect page at Andranik Margarian because apparently there are two ways of spelling the name in English (see Washington Post for the alternative spelling) --Ghormax 11:22, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
