  1. The name England derives from the Angles, a tribe from Germany, who settled the Angle land, in what is now England, in the 5th century. These people became known as Anglefolc (literally Angle folk/people). This usage remains today in words like Anglophile - someone who likes or admires England. The usage of the word gradually shifted and by 1538 the modern spelling of England was being used.

The original name that the Germans gave was Engaland but we changed it as we became more sophisticated.
