Etymology 1

 
Location of Georgia

A borrowing from Medieval Latin Geōrgia, itself a borrowing from Classical Persianگرج(gurj) (with influence from (sānctus) Geōrgius (Saint George), alluding to the saint's popularity in the country), from Middle Persian𐭥𐭫𐭥𐭰𐭠𐭭⁩ pl (wiruz-ān, Iberians, Georgians). The term's further history is unknown; it may ultimately be a derivation from Middle Persian𐭢𐭥𐭫𐭢(gurg, wolf), though that would be phonologically challenging; compare Parthian𐭅𐭉𐭓𐭔𐭍⁩ pl (wiruž-ān), Old Armenian վիր-ք (vir-kʿ), Old East Slavic гурзи (gurzi). Replaced earlier Georgie, from the same source via a Middle French intermediary.

Early medieval sources hypothesize that the country was named after Saint George, while later European accounts connect the name with agricultural tribes called "Georgi" (from Ancient Greek γεωργός (geōrgós, farmer)) mentioned by classical authors (Pliny, IV.26, VI.14; Mela, De Sita Orb. i.2); neither of these etymologies is accepted today.
