Atlanta (ətˈlæntə)

Atlanta is the capital city of the U.S. state of Georgia. It is one of the most important commercial, financial, and transportation hubs in the southern United States.


The name "Atlanta" is derived from the Western and Atlantic Railroad's local depot, signifying the town's growing reputation as a transportation hub. The city's name is often attributed to railroad engineer J. Edgar Thomson's suggestion, who wanted to honor his daughter, named Atlantica-Pacifica.
