"Frenchland" doesn't make sense as a name, as the OE was "Francland"/Frankland. Furthermore, "French" is an adjective or collective form referring to something having the same quality/identity of the Franks/France on a general level; it doesn't work as a standalone part of a title or nation-state. --C4S9D12 (talk) 17:24, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

OK, sounds like Frankland is definitely the best name for this country then. I don't quite get your second point; doesn't the land of the French folk have "the identity of France on a general level?" The forms "Thailand", "Switzerland", "Somaliland" would seem comparable ... although it is true that none of these are descended from forms ending in -isc in Old English.

Anyway, since I was the one who moved the page to this title, I just wanted to reply that I'd support moving it to Frankland, since you point out that this is a better name.

OK, since we seem to be in agreement, I'm moving the page now. 06:19, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong, but, Frankland is a name for the land of Franks. All Germanic languages have come past it and named it Frankreich, Frankrike or something. Ronnie Singh (talk) 11:47, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
