Why 'Charyn'?Edit

Why is this and similar articles called 'Charyn' instead of 'Sharyn'? Where does this 'ch' spelling come from? Either the name should be corrected or there should be some explanation as to why it isn't 'Sharyn'. (talk) 19:02, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

Spurious etymologies?Edit

I am skeptical of both of the supposed etymologies. The Uyghur word for ash tree is ئەرمۇدۇن (ärmudun), not 'sharyn', and I am not familiar any word in any Turkic language that has a meaning of 'precipice' and bears any resemblance to 'çar'. I am not an expert; it is possible these are words that I simply do not know. But the cited source is a travel guide that does not cite any source, let alone one reputable in etymology. A more reputable source is definitely needed here. (talk) 19:40, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
