A transitional serif typeface named after the state, designed by Matthew Carter in 1993.
University of Georgia.
A female given name from Ancient Greek.
A borrowing from Medieval Latin Geōrgia, itself a borrowing from Persian گرج (with influence from (sānctus) Geōrgius, alluding to the saint's popularity in the country), from Middle Persian 𐭥𐭫𐭥𐭰𐭠𐭭. The term's further history is unknown; it may ultimately be a derivation from Middle Persian 𐭢𐭥𐭫𐭢, though that would be phonologically challenging; compare Parthian 𐭅𐭉𐭓𐭔𐭍, Old Armenian վիրք, Old East Slavic гурзи. 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) mentioned by classical authors (Pliny, IV.26, VI.14; Pomponius Mela, De Sita Orb. i.2); neither of these etymologies is accepted today.
