I believe this word comes from the Saxons.

    Wouldn't "saksan kieli" be more correct than "saksa" to german language?

    No one asks, "Do you speak the English language?" in English, they ask, "Do you speak English?", and the same happens to apply to Finnish.

    Why Germany is wrong? Saksa means both the country or the language. Both should be correct

    If written in lowercase, it can't be the country.
