Kalali was a village in the territory of the Alexandropol uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Aghin (Ani) district, and currently in the Shirak province. The village was initially inhabited by Azerbaijanis, but after the Armenians had been settled in the region, the Azerbaijanis migrated to Türkiye.
The toponym was coined on the basis of the multi-generational family name.
By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 3 February 1947, the village was renamed “Noraber”. Later, the village was removed from the list of settlements.
