Doesn't this mean British, not English? Is it usually related to language or more to customs? --Connel MacKenzie 07:00, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

I don't think so. Wikipedia says, "It derives from Lloegr, the Welsh name for the area of Great Britain roughly covering the land of present-day England" and associates it with King Arthur. Now, Arthur, it's true, was not English, but he was really not Welsh or Scottish. Well, except for being slightly Welsh perhaps. Anyway, I always thought "Loegria" was a poetical term for use in analogous opposition to "Cambria" and "Alba".—Nat Krause 08:57, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. I guess it could be a bit clearer about "the area of Great Britain roughly covering the lang of present-day England." It probably should specify the time period being described. Right? --Connel MacKenzie 09:02, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
