The mystery and meaning of the name Altynshash
Translated from the Kazakh language, the word Altyn means «gold» and symbolizes beauty and purity. Most often it is part of compound names, both male and female. By giving their child such a name, parents want their daughter to live a long life in abundance and wealth.
Translated from the Kazakh language, the word shash means «hair» or «braids.» In the global culture from time immemorial the natural adornment of any woman was long beautiful hair. Suffice it to say that cutting off the scythe (shash kyrқu) was one of the most severe punishments provided for in the common law of the Kazakhs against women.
The traditional gift of the bridegroom to the bride at the first meeting is called Shash Sipatar, literally — the fee for stroking the bride’s hair. Hair served as an indicator of the social status of women in traditional Kazakh society. As soon as the girl got married, she hid her hair from prying eyes, only her husband and closest relatives could see her hair. Grieving over the death of a loved one, the woman spread her braids as a sign of mourning (shash zhayu).
At the end of the forty-day mourning for her husband, the woman braided her hair again in braids (shash giyu).
Literally, the name can be translated as «Zolotovlask» or «Golden braids.»
