Armena (R + meen + a)

Armena is a small place about 13 kilometres northwest of Camrose, Alberta. From the time of the first settlers this place had been called “Thordenskold”. Peter Thordenskold was a famous sailor in Norway, and early residents wished to remember him. The Canadian Northern Railway (CNR) gave Armena it’s beginning in 1915. They thought the name was too hard to say and spell so they changed it to Armena. Thank goodness for that!
