History
Armenian term or phrase: kelem
This was a name I found in a book, and upon searching it, I realized that it was derived from Armenian. I wish to know what it means exactly.
Tina Moore
English translation:cabbage
Explanation:
In Armenia the word 'Kelem' (unless it is a name of a person or else) which, in fact, is of Turkish origin is used to refer to the 'cabbage' and has a strictly colloquial use.

I would provide more explanation, if more context is available.
