Goth??

Why is Goth called Goth? The historical goths were barbarians who rampaged across Europe in the first millenium and were involved with such things as the destruction of teh western half of the Roman Empire.

So why do modern Goths call themselves Goths? They aren't anything like the historical goths(unless I'm missing some subtle connection here, entirely possible)... so where do they pull the term from?
