In contrast, the British "Saxons", today referred to in English as Anglo-Saxons , became a single nation bringing together Germanic peoples Frisian , Jutish , Angle with the Romanized Britons , establishing long-lasting post-Roman kingdoms equivalent to those formed by the Franks on the continent.
Their earliest weapons and clothing south of the Thames were based on late Roman military fashions, but later immigrants north of the Thames showed a stronger North German influence.
While the English Saxons were no longer raiders, the political history of the continental Saxons is unclear until the time of the conflict between their semi-legendary hero Widukind and the Frankish emperor Charlemagne.
While the continental Saxons are no longer a distinctive ethnic group or country, their name lives on in the names of several regions and states of Germany , including Lower Saxony which includes central parts of the original Saxon homeland known as Old Saxony , Saxony in Upper Saxony , as well as Saxony-Anhalt which includes Old, Lower and Upper Saxon regions.
The current state of Saxony has its name from dynastic history, and not ethnic history. The name of the Saxons may derive from a kind of knife associated with the ethnos - such a knife has the name seax in Old English, Sax in German, sachs in Old High German, and sax in Old Norse.
The names of these counties, along with the names " Sussex " and " Wessex ", contain a remnant of the root of the word "Saxon".
The Elizabethan-era play Edmund Ironside suggests that the name "Saxon" derives from the Latin saxa stones; singular form: saxum : .
In the Celtic languages , the words designating English nationality derive from the Latin word Saxones.
The most prominent example, a loanword in English from Scottish Gaelic older spelling: Sasunnach , is the word Sassenach , used by Scots -, Scottish English - and Gaelic -speakers in the 21st century  as a jocular term for an English person.
The Gaelic name for England is Sasann older spelling: Sasunn , genitive : Sasainn , and Sasannach formed with a common adjective suffix -ach  means "English" in reference to people and things, though not when naming the English language, which is Bearla.
Sasanach , the Irish word for an Englishman with Sasana meaning England , has the same derivation, as do the words used in Welsh to describe the English people Saeson , singular Sais and the language and things English in general: Saesneg and Seisnig.
Cornish terms the English Sawsnek , from the same derivation. In the 16th century Cornish-speakers used the phrase Meea navidna cowza sawzneck to feign ignorance of the English language.
Similarly Breton , spoken in north-western France, has saoz on 'English' , saozneg 'the English language' , and Bro-saoz for 'England'.
From Transylvania, some of these Saxons migrated to neighbouring Moldavia , as the name of the town Sas-cut shows. Sascut lies in the part of Moldavia that forms part of present-day Romania.
The Finns and Estonians have changed their usage of the root Saxon over the centuries to apply now to the whole country of Germany Saksa and Saksamaa respectively and the Germans saksalaiset and sakslased , respectively.
As a result of the 13th-century Northern Crusades , Estonia 's upper class comprised mostly persons of German origin until well into the 20th century.
The Dutch female given name , Saskia , originally meant 'a Saxon woman' metathesis of Saxia. Following the downfall of Henry the Lion —, Duke of Saxony — , and the subsequent splitting of the Saxon tribal duchy into several territories, the name of the Saxon duchy was transferred to the lands of the Ascanian family.
This led to the differentiation between Lower Saxony lands settled by the Saxon tribe and Upper Saxony the lands belonging to the House of Wettin.
Gradually, the latter region became known as "Saxony", ultimately usurping the name's original geographical meaning. The area formerly known as Upper Saxony now lies in Central Germany - in the eastern part of the present-day Federal Republic of Germany : note the names of the federal states of Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.
Ptolemy 's Geographia , written in the 2nd century, is sometimes considered to contain the first mentioning of the Saxons.
Some copies of this text mention a tribe called Saxones in the area to the north of the lower Elbe. This may be a misspelling of the tribe that Tacitus in his Germania called Aviones.
According to this theory, "Saxones" was the result of later scribes trying to correct a name that meant nothing to them.
He notes that the loss of first letters occurs in numerous places in various copies of Ptolemy's work, and also that the manuscripts without "Saxones" are generally inferior overall.
Schütte also remarks that there was a medieval tradition of calling this area "Old Saxony" covering Westphalia, Angria and Eastphalia. The first undisputed mention of the Saxon name in its modern form is from AD , when Julian , later the Roman Emperor , mentioned them in a speech as allies of Magnentius , a rival emperor in Gaul.
Zosimus also mentions a specific tribe of Saxons, called the Kouadoi , which have been interpreted as a misunderstanding for the Chauci , or Chamavi.
They entered the Rhineland and displaced the recently settled Salian Franks from Batavi , whereupon some of the Salians began to move into the Belgian territory of Toxandria , supported by Julian.
Both in this case and in others the Saxons were associated with using boats for their raids. In order to defend against Saxon raiders, the Romans created a military district called the Litus Saxonicum "Saxon Coast" on both sides of the English Channel.
In — AD, Saxons are mentioned for the first time as inhabitants of Britain, when an unknown Gaulish historian wrote: "The British provinces Saxons as inhabitants of present-day Northern Germany are first mentioned in , when the Frankish king Theudebald died, and the Saxons used the opportunity for an uprising.
The uprising was suppressed by Chlothar I , Theudebald's successor. Some of their Frankish successors fought against the Saxons, others were allied with them.
The Thuringians frequently appeared as allies of the Saxons. In the Netherlands , Saxons occupied the territory south of the Frisians and north of the Franks.
In the west it reached as far as the Gooi region, in the south as far as the Lower Rhine. After the conquest of Charlemagne, this area formed the main part of the Bishopric of Utrecht.
The Saxon duchy of Hamaland played an important role in the formation of the duchy of Guelders. The local language, although strongly influenced by standard Dutch , is still officially recognised as Dutch Low Saxon.
In , some Saxons accompanied the Lombards into Italy under the leadership of Alboin and settled there. Divided, they were easily defeated by the Gallo-Roman general Mummolus.
When the Saxons regrouped, a peace treaty was negotiated whereby the Italian Saxons were allowed to settle with their families in Austrasia.
One group proceeded by way of Nice and another via Embrun , joining up at Avignon. They were forced to pay compensation for what they had robbed before they could enter Austrasia.
These people are known only by documents, and their settlement cannot be compared to the archeological artifacts and remains that attest to Saxon settlements in northern and western Gaul.
