Etymology 1[edit]

Location of Georgia

Unclear etymology. Early medieval sources explain Georgia's name by the popularity of Saint George, Georgia's Patron Saint, among Georgians. Later European accounts trace the origin to Latin Georgius, itself derived from Ancient Greek Γεώργιος (Geṓrgios, farmer). Supporters of this explanation relied on classical authors Pliny and Pomponius Mela, who mentioned agricultural tribes called "Georgi", (Pliny, IV.26, VI.14; Mela, De Sita Orb. i.2, &50;) so named to distinguish them from their unsettled and pastoral neighbors.

Some 20th-century scholars have speculated that Georgia could have the same origin as Russian грузи́н (gruzín). This origin is گرج (Gorj), from Middle Persian 𐭥𐭫𐭥𐭰𐭠𐭭 pl (Wiruz-ān, Iberians, Georgians). Compare Parthian 𐭅𐭉𐭓𐭔𐭍 pl (Wiruž-ān), Manichaean Parthian wrwcʾn pl (wrwcʾn), Old Armenian վիր-ք (vir-kʿ).
