This persistent urban myth that "Welsh" means "foreign". It doesn't. It was the Germanic word for "Celtic" derived from the name of the Celtic tribe the Roman's called the "Volcae" - "Welsh" means "Celt". The Southern Germans call their romanised Celtic neighbours "die Welschen". It has nothing to do with "foreigner".
