Palidli is a village in the Alexandropol uezd of the former Iravan governorate, in the former Gizil Goch, (Gukasyan) district, and currently in the Shirak province. The provincial centre lies 24 km to the north of the town of Gumru, 4 km to the east of the village of Gurjuyolu (Torosgyug), at a height of 1,920 m above sea level. It was mentioned in “The Iravan Province Review Book”.

The village was initially inhabited by Azerbaijanis, but after the settlement of Armenians in the region, the population gradually left the village.

The toponym was coined by adding the suffix “-li” to the word “palıd” (an oak).

By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 25 January 1978, the village was renamed “Arpeni”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of the Republic of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative area of the Shirak province.
