to be known by the name of one’s oppressors

Greetings,

Taken from some writings on Welsh history (though this is very much a current issue too), the following sentence refers to the way in which in many countries people often call the Welsh “English”, even though, for example, if you looked at my so-called "English" passport (in truth a UK passport), you would not find the word "English" even once; all you would find would be my birthplace, which is Bangor (in Wales).

"When the Welsh go abroad they are known by the name of their oppressors."
Please, how can I say this?

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon

    Greetings seitt,

    You could say:

    Όταν οι Ουαλοί πηγαίνουν στο εξωτερικό είναι γνωστοί με το όνομα των καταπιεστών τους.

    Greetings seitt,

    Also ... με το όνομα του δυνάστη τους.
