Random information on the term “Anglo-__”:
The Angles (Old English: Ængle, Engle; Latin: Angli; German: Angeln) were one of the main Germanic peoples who settled in Great Britain in the post-Roman period. They founded several kingdoms of the Heptarchy in Anglo-Saxon England, and their name is the root of the name England (“land of Ængle”). According to Tacitus, writing before their move to Britain, Angles lived alongside Langobards and Semnones in historical regions of Schleswig and Holstein, which are today part of southern Denmark and northern Germany (Schleswig-Holstein).
The name of the Angles may have been first recorded in Latinised form, as Anglii, in the Germania of Tacitus. It is thought to derive from the name of the area they originally inhabited, the Anglia Peninsula (Angeln in modern German, Angel in Danish). This name has been hypothesised to originate from the Germanic root for “narrow” (compare German and Dutch eng = “narrow”), meaning “the Narrow [Water]”, i.e., the Schlei estuary; the root would be *h₂enǵʰ, “tight”. Another theory is that the name meant “hook” (as in angling for fish), in reference to the shape of the peninsula; Indo-European linguist Julius Pokorny derives it from Proto-Indo-European *h₂enk-, “bend” (see ankle). Alternatively, the Angles may have been called such because they were a fishing people or were originally descended from such.
