Hi. I'm posting here coz I need some more information about a font. We have an assignment for school in which we had to choose our favorite font and make something around it. The font I chose is Georgia. I looked up information about this font, and found out that the name is based on aliens that were once found in the state Georgia. But could someone tell me *why* they decided to dedicated that fact to a font? Is there a place where I could find out more about it?

Thank you :)

"Georgia received its name from: "Alien heads found in Georgia," a tabloid headline..." from here.

For more history about the font (inspiration, screen use, etc.) try the Microsoft website.

Hope those help.
