Saxony



Origin: Germanic

Meaning: a region in Germany with a long history, the name was derived from the Saxons who originally inhabited the area. Though the etymology is uncertain, it's likely the name might have been derived from seax, a type of knife they used meaning "knife, short sword, dagger".

Some sources also cite it as possibly meaning "stone".
