Balázs Déri says:

Some claim Kohns to descend from A'eherrenna,but at least zhé speaking sázari-kohn tribe could be sons of Azara-Sha and her husband A-han-man-na called perhaps by his oset (ostiak) descendants coming from hanti-manshi region Sozri-Ko,ancestor of some brahmanas and son of A-Hammad-at-te'a related to muhammadan t'át near Hammadán - kurd-t'átin - and t'átzhik nations.

He was of makedón or bugai descendance possibly of Ak-Keram-Ma-wa and E-Zha-Bet-Dawa related to zhé-dou and ku-er-yuppite,sons of Ze-Ma-Rawa.

Jews and christians however call them Ahron,Zeresh,Haman,Hamdata-Karmi,Zabdi and Zimri.
