Toscead betweox fadungum "Mōtung:Þeodscland"

::Yes; it is helpful to have identified the Kingdom of the East Franks, predecessor of the HRE, as known and named in the sources. Interestingly, I found [http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostfranken_und_Westfranken this article] in the Deutschen Wikipedia. My only problem was the hint that we might start calling all of Germany "Eastfrancan", but for describing the East Frankish kingdom, ''Eastfrancan'' is unimpeacable.

===Well, then...==-=
If we were to accept "Germania" for "Germany", as preferred to "Þēod(i)scland", how might we best distinguish between "German" and "Germanic". Currently, "Germanisc" is being (quite appropriately, IMHO) used to mean "Germanic", but it could cause serious confusion in certain circumstances if it were also used for "German". It would, of course, be easy enough to distinguish between hustirical Germania and modern Germany, so for me that is not an issue. One word that suggests itself to me for "German", especially applicable for languages (which is where the distinction is, perhaps, most important), is "Hēahþēodisc". Thoughts? (Just so you know, I'll be away for a few days, so don't expect any immediate responses from me.)[[biliþ:Benmoreandflower.JPG|border|38px]]&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#262" size="3px">[[user:Gottistgut|Ƿes hāl!]]</font>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;[[biliþ:Fiordland Lake Marian.jpg|border|38px]] 10:59, 29 Gēolmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)
 
:The way I understand it, ''Germania'' as a place-name is the same concept as ''Siberia''; it's simply the name of a land-- in this case, named in reference to a (foreign, from Roman point of view) general group of people. Deutschland, as a result, resides within Germania. I'm seeing ''Þeodscland ƿiþ Germania'' being about like ''Russia vs Siberia''. We need two names because they're two different (although very inter-connected) concepts.
