Meaning & History

Means "beyond the Caucasus", derived from Latin trans meaning "across, beyond" combined with the latinized Greek noun Caucasia meaning "the Caucasus" (both the mountains and their namesake region). This is the name of the southern part of the Caucasus region, which is sometimes also called the South Caucasus and Southern Caucasia.
