Georgia is a country located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

Due to its location as a country, Georgia's culture is many years old with the amalgamation of Asian and European cultures. The country has Georgian as its official language.

Many of the Georgian names come from different cultures and origins, as we will see. In Georgia, names and surnames have a distinct touch to them. While the first name has used the standard naming convention, the last name is derived by adding a few suffixes to the father's or, in some cases, mother's name.

So, Georgian surnames are unique. Yet, here we will only deal with Georgian names. So, go ahead and take a look at our list.
