They refer to themselves as “those who sing the songs of the Earth” because of their unique language referred to as “the Old Tongue” which Martin describes in The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones, as “sounding like the song of stones in a brook, or the wind through the leaves, or the rain upon water” he further explains that “their speech originated, or drew inspiration from, the sounds they heard everyday” (6).
