Sakartvelo, Sakaaaaartvelo...

We call the country Georgia. Russia calls it Грузия (Gruziya). The Georgians call their country Sakartvelo. Odd, isn’t it? Funny how country names change. What we call China the Chinese call Zhong Guo. What we call Finland the Finnish call Suomi. What we call Germany the Germans call Deutschland. In return, the Chinese call America Mei Guo, the Koreans call it Mei Gook and the Arabs (if I remember right), call our country Umrika (when not referring to us as “The Great Satan”).
