Well, maybe Galizien und Lodomerien has some historical background.Domen121 wrote: Moreover, "Westpreussen" is not even a historically justifiable name of this land. Just like Neuostpreußen (areas of eastern Mazovia), Südpreußen (area of Warsaw), Netze-Distrikt (Cuiavia), Neuschlesien (western part of Cracow Voivodeship), Galizien (Lesser Poland), Königreich Galizien und Lodomerien mit dem Großherzogtum Krakau und den Herzogtümern Auschwitz und Zator (Austrian-occupied Poland), Привислинский кра / Priwislinskij kraj (Russian-occupied Poland), etc. - all of these names were "invented" during the partitions in late 18th century.
"Galizien" / "Galicja" probably originated from "Halych" / "Halicz" (Haliczja?, Halychien?; H = G in Russian)
There was a medieval Ruthenian kingdom of Halych-Wolhynia in that area, later conquered by Poland.
Maybe "Lodomerien" / "Lodomeria" have some connections with "Wolhynia" / "Wolyn" then.
