Fun Fact: Why There Is A Country Called Georgia

Fun facts about the country of Georgia

The country of Georgia is also based on the name George. Except the British used to refer to the Russian word Gruzia (which is also based on the name George) for the country but dropped it at some point in history. Native Georgians refer to themselves as Kartveli, and their country as Sakartvelo. Which in turn got it’s name for St. George.
