Also, Anglia is merely the Latin name for England, so East Anglia for the eastern part is perfectly correct. And finally, it has been called East Anglia for as long as I can remember which is much longer than you are old. It is only the last that have ever called it Anglia.

    Nah.

    Anglia now:

    West Anglia is the Wellingborough, Kettering, MKs, Rushden etc. areas.

    We are mid-Anglia in the Cambridge area with Newmarket etc.

    Not surprisingly, the east bit is to the east and we call that east Anglia.

    'nuff said, eh.

    Nope, you're wrong. Anglia for East Anglia is a modern thing caused by people and organisations abbreviating it to just Anglia, e. g. Anglia Building Society, Anglia Television (i. e. being lazy or trying to be clever). The stuff I posted backs up what I say, the area is East Anglia as in Eastern England. Anglia is the latin name for England and the Anglians occupied the who of the northern and eastern parts of England. There is no West Anglia though - the areas you mention are the East Midlands, and used to be Mercia in the times when East Anglia existed - and the name Anglia is no longer used, except in the name of East Anglia.

    Do adults speak like that?

    Yes, I have seen two examples of it just today on TV, both adults.

    It is more worser when grown ups do it.
