Popular Azerbaijani surnames

In Azerbaijan, surnames often have a patronymic structure, where the father's first name is used as the basis for the child's surname. For example, if a man's name is "Elvin" and his son's name is "Yusif," the son's surname would be "Elvin oglu Yusif," which means "Yusif, son of Elvin." Women also have a patronymic surname, but it is typically formed using the suffix "-gyzy" or "-qizi" instead of "-oglu." Additionally, some individuals may have a surname that reflects their profession or place of origin.
