Etymology[edit]

From Old Saxon Sahsa (a Saxon, a Low German), a tribe/people inhabiting northern Germany (not to be mixed up with modern Sachsen which denotes a different region that adopted the name later for dynastical reasons). Germans in general were identified with (Old) Saxons because contact with the German-speaking countries happened at first mainly via the Baltic Sea with people speaking Low German.
