According to Dictionary.com a Sassenach is ” a typical Englishman or something considered typical of England —often used disparagingly by Scots and Irish.”
If we look a little closer at this word, Sassenach, it comes from the Scottish Gaelic word sasunnach, literally meaning ‘Saxon’, and originally used by Gaelic speakers to refer to non-Gaelic speaking Scottish Lowlanders. In modern Scotland, however, the term has become sassenach, meaning something or someone English.
Many of us became familiar with this word while reading and watching the Outlander series. When Jamie calls Claire a Sassenach, he is drawing attention to the fact that she is English and a foreigner. He means it as an affectionate term, but this is not always the case.
When you wear this pendant, you will truly be a Sassenach too!
“It has always been forever for me, Sassenach.”
