Best Answer

Anglians (from Anglia on the European continent, now part of Germany) migrated to the British Isles in the 5th and 6th centuries. Also Saxons from Saxony and other groups went the same route. Their languages and cultures merged over the generations and they became Anglo-Saxon. A part of present-day England (East Anglia) is named for Anglia on the continent. The name English ultimately is derived from Anglian.
