Possibly an Armenian form of Aristarchos, or perhaps from a Middle Persian word meaning "resurrection of the dead" (Persian رستاخیز (rastâxiz)). This was borne by a 4th-century Armenian saint who was a son of Gregory the Illuminator (the religious leader traditionally credited with Christianizing Armenia). This name has been used from the 4th century CE until now.
