We’re both mutts-I’m not positive what he is, although I think british is somewhere in there, jewish, & not sure what else. I’m 1/2 latvian, 1/4 german & 1/4 mixed-candian-indian (Native american), scottish, english, lots of stuff!

heh I totally thought this was going to be about dogs too 🙂

We will have mutts! Fiance is irish-hungarian. I am: bohemian-welsh from my father and german-scottish from my mother.

In the US it seems very rare that anyone is 100% anything anymore. All of my grandparents were, I believe, because their parents were immigrants. I always thought it would be interesting to have some tie to another country/culture but pretty much the only thing my family ever did was make bohemian food.

Me: 3/4 caucasian (my grandpa is an orphan so I don’t really know what i am and never will, but my maiden name is a very strong German name. German, irish, scottish, that kind of stuff) and 1/4 Korean

Him: More caucasian–german and polish, not sure on the percentages. However, his (our) last name originates from Ireland, England, Scotland, and German according to Ancestry.com.

I agree in the US it seems unusual to be 100% anything unless you’re non-caucasian. I see plenty of korean-korean families or indian-indian (and i know cultures like these don’t generally approve of marrying outside your race) but if you’re white, well, you’re a mutt, unless you’re directly from europe! I saw more mixes out in California and on the east coasts, and sadly I don’t see too many interracial marriages here in St. Louis. I have friends whose parents are extremely racist still–there is still a huge stigma here where I live about marrying outside your race. You just don’t do it sometimes because it’s “not how things are done” or “my parents would kill me”. It’s sad =(.

@anamcara, i thought we were talking about dogs, too! i was like “oh i wonder what kind of dog lillindy wants!”

My two kitties are purebreed cats, though. How silly would it be if people had “papers” too?! lol

I’m 100% French descent and Fiance is Italian/Irish/German. He has auburn hair and a really Irish name (O’)  and I really want kids with red hair!!!

We’re both completely Scottish. Well, with the most miniscule bit of Welsh/Irish. So, completely British. How boring in comparison to some of you guys!

I’m mainly irish (dad is 100%) with some more irish and then polish and a tiny bit of german mixed in.  I absolutely identify as irish, my name is super irish, i look irish and i have an irish tattoo.  FI is irish, scottish and german (maybe english too?) but doesn’t really identify as one over another.  Our children will be strongly irish if i have anything to say about it!! =)

Haha, I’m a total mutt (German Fijian and 3rd generation Chinese) but my FH is purebred English.
