The Men of Harad, the ancient enemies of Gondor from the lands to the south.
'Southron' is a real archaic word, essentially equivalent to modern 'Southerner' (and in fact derived from a corruption of the word 'southern'). Historically it was used by the people of Scotland to refer to their English neighbours to the south.
