Agricola is a farming game that shares a name with a (mildly) famous Roman general. They have the same pronunciation, i.e. the game is not pronounced as agri-cola.
Given that Agricola the general isn't super famous, especially not as a farmer, then why does the game share his name?
“Agricola” is the Latin word for “farmer” (dictionary).
It is derived from “ager” (“field”) and “-cola” (“-tiller”, “-cultivator”). “Agriculture” shares the same root, and so does “acre” (albeit indirectly).
That a Roman general had it as his last name is unrelated.
