I live in Wales, "Pay de Galles" in French. In conversation I find I am referred to as "de Galles", which is correct?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le, la, l', les with continents, countries & regions names (definite articles)"

The country is 'Le Pays de Galles' and its inhabitants are 'les gallois' . I have never heard 'de Galles' used .
I think in Rugby they sometimes shorten it to 'Galles' when they speak of it in a match.
Maybe someone else can add to this?
