'Celtic' - To put the record straight.

I would like to make it clear that I have nothing against those who refer to themselves as 'Celts', although I have had no complaints on this, just wish to put the record straight. The problem I see in the term 'Celtic' is that it is a term greatly misused, and not only misused but used against the Germanic Folk here in these islands (as well as other areas, of course). It has been used to 'divide and conquer' and even then its use is not even logical since it has been used to describe the Scots, Irish and Welsh, even though a great deal of these peoples are Germanic in origin. The term is used to distance these nations from the English Nation which is deemed (sometimes) to be Germanic; even then the term 'Celtic' is used for the English when these people see fit to use it. 

This is why I have used the terms 'Germano-Celt' and 'Gallo-Celt', the former Northern Europe and the latter Southern Europe. Today, all of these nations are a mixture, but there is a need to differentiate when looking at the ancient past. There are those who suggest we use the term Aryan but here we introduce a greater problem. There is today no such thing as the Aryan Race which was the ancient Solar Race made up of the "Twice-Born". Using the term 'Aryan' would not be right since this can refer only to the very few Aryan Initiates. 

In The Celts by Gerhard Herm he quotes Strabo as saying that the Romans in Gaul called the Germans 'Germani' because they were the 'authentic' or 'real' Celts, the term 'germani' meaning 'genuine' in the sense of 'original'. Strabo uses the term 'I imagine' so we are here left with no real basis for this since he does not actually know why the Romans called them this. 

There is always a problem in regard to Germanic and Celtic peoples since the names we have come down to us are more often than not Roman. The name Teuton is often said to be 'Roman' but clearly the roots are Germanic, relating to the god Tiw or to Teuta relating to a tribe (Tuatha). 'God' in Roman is Deus and in Welsh Diw, yet the Greek is Theos. The highest god of the Greeks was Zeus, and we have the Ziu of the Germans, no doubt a regional variation of Tiw. 

The symbol of Tiw is clearly a spear since his rune is the Tir-Rune or Tiwaz-Rune, even though he is seen as a sword-god. Since the Germans use the name Deutschen then their nation is clearly related to Tiw, if we compare the various Germanic Nations and their relations to a particular god-form -

English - Ingwe.

Dutch - Deutschen (Tiw) or Frau Holle (Holland). 

Frisians - Freya.

Austria - Ostara.

Danes - Dana/Dan

Goths/Geats/Getae/Gutes/Jutes/Jats - Gaut/Geat (Woden).


When we see that the Germans have named their land after Tiw as the Spear-God then the term 'German' may well be a variation of 'Gar-Man' or 'Spear-Man'. This does not negate the Roman use for 'real' in regard to the Celts, but the problem lies in that the Germano-Celts did not use the term 'Celt' which is Greek in origin, and the meaning is not clear either. The term 'Germanic' and 'Germania' could be used if it is right to see these as 'Spear-Men' related to their prowess as great warriors. The term Teutonic is often used too, and again this relates to Tiw as the sky-god and to Teuta as the Tribal God. Tacitus also traces the Germanic Folk back to the earth-born god Tuisto whose name can mean 'twin'. 

There is also the Hindu Twasti whose role is to turn the 'Swastika' in creating friction-fire, and in the Oera Linda Book the area of Germania is named Twiskland. All of these terms - Tuisto/Tiw/Twisk/Teu - are related to 'two' or to 'twin' and also to the Divine Twins. In Plato's 'Atlantis' we find that Ten Kings rule these lands, each being a pair of 'Twin-Kings'. The name 'Tiw' also mean 'shining' relating to the Sun and to Light; he is the original Sky-Father.

That the name 'German' means 'spear-man' is not out of the question when we consider the following Germanic Nations and their names which relate to weapons -

Saxon - Seax.

Frank - Axe.

My good friend Heathen Vegan mentioned something about the Goths and their relationship to 'gaut'  which stems from the PIE *gautaz meaning 'to pour'. His idea was that they 'poured' out of the Ur-Lands of the North which is interesting. There is another interpretation I have seen and that is 'to pour' refers to an offering or libation, just as we 'pour the mead' as an offering to our Gods and Ancestors. Since Gaut is a name of Woden then this infers his ur-role as the 'High Priest' who performed the sacrifices and offerings. 

The 'Goths' are the 'People of Gott' or the 'People of God' and since we find that Woden is also known as Godan or Guodan then the term 'God' could be a variation of 'Wod' or 'Od', although we find that the Land of the Geats - Gotaland - is pronounced 'Yotaland', so the 'G' is either silent (as with 'Gwydion') or sounded as 'Y'. The Old English word cyning is pronounced 'cooning' which is yet another variation in sound. The Goths can also be seen as the 'Good-Ones'. (*) 

(*) The name 'Woden' would not have been pronounced with the modern 'w' but as Uuoden, the 'w' being a 'double-u', which would be alike to 'Odin' as pronounced in Scandinavia. Even with this the 'd' is also sounded like 'th' as in 'Odhinn'. Both the sound 'd' and 'th' are sounded with the tongue pressed against the back of the upper gums. The 'd' is sounded from the back of the mouth, whilst the 'th' is sounded from the front of the mouth. Maybe the true sound is between the two forms. (Try sounding this by thinking the sound 'th' but as you do so sound it as 'd'.)

I have shown how the Joten are two distinct and different races, one 'Sweat-Born' (High Race) and one 'Low-Born' (Low Race). The name 'Joten' may be related to 'Jute' or 'Yota' etc. and in terms of this idea they would have been the 'original' ones since they were the first race created from Ymir - 'Twin'. 

Prior to the Roman invasion of these islands, and throughout the time of the Roman occupation, the rulers of some of the 'Celtic' tribes wore the Golden Torc around their necks. I have shown before how this symbol can be related to the worship of Woden since it is the 'twisted cord' or 'hangman's noose' around the neck - symbolic of the individual (aethlinga) being 'fettered' or 'bound' to the god Woden. This symbol is very different from the 'Golden Crown' of kingship, a symbol of the 'halo' around the 'enlightened'. There is a coin of the Suessiones - part of the Belgae - showing a bulging-eyed figure being 'swallowed' by a wolf, a clear symbol from Germanic Mythology - Woden swallowed by the Fenris Wolf. 

It seems that the earliest name use of the Germanic Folk was the tribal name Tungri and some say that they adopted the term 'Germani' themselves, though there are varied accounts of this. The word Tungri is itself interesting since it is near to Tengri which is the name of the Sky-God worshipped by Genghis Khan and the Clan of the Blue-Wolf whom he belonged to. Tengri was the clear blue sky of the day, the blue (sky) and gold (sun) of the Ancient Arya. Tengri is the 'Blue Wolf'. The Tungri moved into part of Belgic Gaul, the home of the Belgae.

I suppose the term Northern Folk would today best describe both what we call the Germans and Celts, but we have also adopted the term Nation of Woden or Tribe of Woden. This would be far better and to give an example of how things can be vague on the subject of Germania and Celtica some ancient writers mentioned how different the two peoples of North Wales and South Wales were. This seems to appear now in the knowledge that the Tegeingl and Gangani occupied North Wales and the Silures occupied South Wales; the Silures were described as a dark mediterranean people by Tacitus. Today South Wales is still different from North Wales, but the people of the North are darker which suggests a movement upwards by the Silures. South Wales is closer to the English, and Penbrokeshire is called 'Little England'. Many surnames in South Wales are of English origin - so things can change drastically over the centuries.

Why I decided to do this article is that we need to get out to the Woden-Born throughout these islands, and we also cater for the US which has people from the nations of these islands too. For convenience we use the term 'Germanic', and also because it has become somewhat 'taboo' after World War II, and we still need to keep alive the origins of the English Folk despite this happening...and it would be backing down to tyranny if we completely dropped this since that is what our enemies want.
