The Anglo-Saxons are considered Germanic people. These Germanic people consisted of three major tribes Jute, Angles, and Saxons. Anglo-Saxons were migrants who come from Germany in the 5th and 6th centuries. They settled themselves in England, mainly the eastern region of England. 

The name ‘Anglo-Saxons’ were raised to distinguish these people from who leaves in mainland ‘Germany’. The main language of their communication was Old English. That is why Anglo-Saxons Names were derived from the old English and German language (Choose A Necromancer Name Here)
