Regarding the etymology - isn't there a Persian cognate of "Georgia" dating back to long before the term was used in Western languages? And what, there was no farming in medieval Armenia? I thought the etymology did come from St. George, by analogy (i.e., the same reason people drop the R in "February," or the way "rule of thumb" went from meaning "quick hack" to "maxim for quick hacks") in the Hellenization.
