Our "What's in a Name" Series takes us to Anglia. Anglia is a small territory located on the Eastern side of the Jutland Peninsula, near the Baltic Sea. Its local tribe, the Angles, decided to migrate to new lands and moved towards the Island of Great Britain, which had been devastated by wars and famines. Like their neighbours, the Jutes and the Saxons, they went on forming several kingdoms on the East coast of Great Britain, pushing the native Britons further West. While not the most numerous of the Anglo-Saxon conquerors, and only one of the many groups that invaded the British Isles before the 12th Century, their name somehow became associated with the new Kingdom of England (Kingdom of the Angles) and, thereby, to the English language. Modern English is derived from a mix of Anglo-Saxon dialects and later Normand French influences. Today, English is the true global language, spoken or understood by billions of people around the World. Quite impressive for such a humble beginning.
