About the Morgan surname


from Balázs Déri

Morgan alias Chao Nam people,classified among the "Sea Gypsy",

may have their origin in Nam Chao empire ,  founded by ancestors of 
some of  the modern  Thais,according to general belief ,called also Tali .

As such they may be related to Sama-Tali people in he Venzuela-Brazil border area ,

descending - l ike the rest of Yanoamas -  from A-Wa-Reg-Ham-Me son of 
A'al-Apar-Gela   son of Sheg-Ha-Rawa-Ma  known in the Pascuan tradition  as  Tai Amahiro and in  Armenian one Amasia ( Ama-Sia ) , likely founder of Siam' . 
Samatalis' concrete  ancestor may be
Shama-Sha-Rawa ,his son .

Morgan ethnonym thus may be derived from A-Wa-Rag-Ham-Me's name corresponding to antique Hammuragash and to Pascuan Hamea , whom Armenians on turn in their genealogy call , for some reason Harma,

and Greeks Orkham(os) ,as the ancestor of  Persian kings .  His son was   namely Ze-Kera-Wa ,identifyable with Zeys,father of Perseys .

Byblicllay,just as by Armenians ,Perseys may be mentioned under the name Ar-Ram-Ma .

His grandson was Kart(os) too,likely founder of Kartli,called also Iberia  ,
inhabitants of which ,
the Ibér ( Iba-ya-War ) people lives in Roraima known as Wariba .

Even Welsh Morgans thus may be descended from him,through a

very likely Ibérian connection,
which for example Silurs in De Hen Bart had . De Hen Bart itself may well    be a colony of  the E-Wash-A-Shak-Kel-Ra tribe's locality called  De-Barret   , that is an Eusskera country .

Other Sea Gypsies called Bajau and Chao Ta Le may be descended from Orkham's nephew,Zha-Bad-Awa ,

brother of A-Cha-La-Te-Wa .
