Me: I was born in Colombia, adopted by a German and an Italian American.  So I look hispanic but I speak German, celebrate German holidays, and cook Italian foods.

Darling Husband:  He’s everything – German, Irish, English, Polish, Russian, etc.

He’s Irish, born and raised.  I’m Canadian (Scottish background.)  We will have giant, babies with awful (likely red) hair.  He’s a ginger, my family is full of gingers and we both have oodles of hair (mine is curly).  And no one in either family is shorter than 5’9.  All the babies are 9+ lbs, a few 10 pounders.  I’m sufficiently terrified.

I’m Swedish and my boyfriend is English. :)<br /><br />May I ask how some people can be this many different nationalities? I haven’t seen this before: aren’t you the nationality of the culture you are raised in?

We are both white British. However, he has significant Irish Catholic roots. I am a “mongrel”, like many Brits… my ancestors came from all over the UK and Europe… and I probably have ancestors from further afield, as well.

I’m 100% white-English, Irish, German, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian.

Aelie:  Yeah nationality is the country you were born. Your race (referring to the reference in the original post about interracial couples) is your colouring.

tobemrstaddesse:  I am Scottish through and through, though judging by my pale colouring (blonde, blue eyes, very white) I could have some distant ancestry from other Nordic places.

My Fiance is also Scottish. However we know a lot of his ancestry! His people have been where we are for generations and he is descended from a Norwegian king, Óláfr Guðrøðarson, who owned and ruled the island we live on and some surrounding isles, lands and parts of the sea. Óláfr was the second son of Guðrøðr Óláfsson who was King of the Isles, King of Dublin and whose wife was granddaughter of the High King of Ireland. (This is like in the thirteenth century though!)
