Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

The country of Georgia.

Probably from the Persian designation of the Georgians as Gurjhān and the country as Gurjistan (compare modern Russian Грузия (Grúzija)), which stemmed from the Ancient Iranian and Middle Persian vrkān/waručān, possibly a variant form of varkân, "land of the wolves". In the West, the Persian and Arabic forms has been associated, through folk etymology, with the word Latin Georgius, from Ancient Greek Γεώργιος (georgios, farmer), and have been sometimes connected to the name of Saint George, itself from Ancient Greek Γεώργιος (georgios, farmer).
