Does anyone know if there was a Jewish name for Poland or Russia during the Medieval ages like there was for Western Europe?

I was looking through the etymology of Ashkenazi and found that it was taken from the Jewish word to represent German Jewish settlements in the Rhineland and also learned that there was a trend to label areas of Jewish settlement with biblical names such as Bohemia being the Land of Canaan, Spain being Seferad, and France being Tsarefat. But this made me wonder what the Jewish names for the east of Europe would be such as what Jewish settlements in Russia and Poland would label the land they live on as. Thanks for any information anyone can provide.
