The southern and eastern parts of Great Britain lost to English settlement became known in Welsh as Lloegyr (Modern Welsh Lloegr), which may have referred to the kingdom of Mercia originally, and which came to refer to England as a whole.[nb 2] The Germanic tribes who now dominated these lands were invariably called Saeson, meaning "Saxons". The Anglo-Saxons called the Romano-British 'Walha', meaning 'Romanised foreigner' or 'stranger'.[48] The Welsh continued to call themselves Brythoniaid (Brythons or Britons) well into theMiddle Ages, though the first written evidence of the use of Cymru and y Cymry is found in a praise poem to Cadwallon ap Cadfan(Moliant Cadwallon, by Afan Ferddig) c. 633.[3] In Armes Prydain, believed to be written around 930–942, the words Cymry and Cymro are used as often as 15 times.[49] However, from the Anglo-Saxon settlement onwards, the people gradually begin to adopt the name Cymryover Brythoniad.[50]
