Subhanverdi is a village in the Alexandropol uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Aghin (Ani) district, and currently in the Shirak province. The provincial centre lies 22 km to the southwest of the town of Gumru, near the Arpachay, at a height of 1470 m above sea level. Its name was noted as “Subhanverdi” in the “Iravan Province Review Book”, and marked as “Suvanverdi” on the five-verst map of the Caucasus.

According to the Treaty of Adrianople (1829), after the settlement of Armenians in the territory of the Iravan Khanate, the Azerbaijani population of the village moved to Türkiye.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the personal name “Subhanverdi”.

By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian SSR dated 3 February 1947, it was renamed “Lyusakhbyur”. 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.
