Anglo really means "English" so I suppose it means "English-American" The Spanish-Americans seem to call everybody else "Anglo's", but really many Americans are decended from many other nationalities. So we could go by names such as: German-Americans, Norwegian-Americans, French-Canadian-Americans, etc. I hope we don't have to commonly use these terms, except when searching our genealogy or something.

Yes and if you want to go before that it was really the joining of the 7 kingdoms of the "Angles" from Northern Germany to the "Saxxons" were from Essex, Sussex and Wessex were from the lower part of Germany.
They staged an invasion of Great Britain.

In popular usage in Canada and the United States, the term "Anglo-Saxon" (such as White Anglo-Saxon Protestant or WASP) has evolved into a politicized term with little connection to its academic definition. Until about 1960 the term was mostly used and popularized by Irish Catholics and French-Canadians. Since 1960 it has more general usage, but exactly who it designates has become a matter of individual opinions and context, ranging from people of English descent to any North American of European origin who fits a socio-economic and/or ethnic profile.
