In early modern English, it was also called Welch Flanders or Gallike Flanders. The original French name is Flandre Gallicane or Flandre Gallicante, derived from the Latin term : Gallo Flandria or Flandria Gallica.
The term Walloon Flanders should not be used to designate the entire region, as it refers only to a part of Gallicant Flanders around Lille. A better name for that region is Lilloise Flanders. The use of Walloon Flanders is political, not linguistic as Romance Flanders or Gallicant Flanders.
