From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arnaut (آرناﺌود)is the Turkish word for the people of Albania. Arnauts in modern Turkey are people of Albanian descent. Historically in the Ottoman Empire, the word often referred to mercenary soldiers from Albania or from the surrounding mountainous region.[1]

Arnaut is also the Turkish name for Arvanites, while Arvanites itself is the Greek version of Arbëreshë, the name ethnic Albanians called themselves until 250 years ago.
