I'm Irish...that's about it really. Celtic origins, and no outside influences that I know of.

That's neat.  I've actually thought about naming one of my daughters Aisling (an Irish name meaning "dreams" in Gaeilge).

Hey, another Scott!  But, if you don't mind me asking, what's Cameroonian?

I was born in TX, USA, but my ancestores mostly orginated from Balvaria Germany, i'd say 60% of my ancestory is that. The rest goes to of Scottland, irish, and French decent. And about 3% Native American on my end hehe.

Well, if I do decide to name someone Aisling, I should never move to Ireland...good to know.  Hah, it's a small world!

Hah, I have a teeny-tiny bit of Native American, too!

Ohh...that's a bit simpler.  Funny how it sometimes happens that you don't look how you should.

¿Puedes hablar español, Pink Mist?

 

Claro que si. :lol: It's my native language after all :)

Fully italian I believe, My father moved to Bergamo from south Italy and my mother and her family has always lived in the north, I'm a bit "sad" about it. It would surely be interesting to also have a different heritage.

 

That's really cool :D I really love Italy. The food is amazing and the pics of it I've seen are beautiful. I wish I could go to Venice one day. But sadly that will never happen. I'll never get to travel :(

i'm actualy proud of them, yeah they died worthlessly for a stupid and wrong cause but they fighted till the last breath... i'll honor every soldier who died, german, american, italian, japanese, russian in every war or place... humans being are not born to kill themselves.... but still the death is equal for anyone... so i shall bring honor to who died fighting for an ideal or his motherland, even if the cause is wrong

That's quite a "fun" turn of events, I'm not much into army stuff to be honest but it really seems like you have a huge military background D:

 

Yeah Venice is beautiful indeed, it really has something magical to it. I wish our government would do something to guarantee it's conservation.

I guess you are right, the food is great and we have many lovely places to see.

 

That's really sad! I'm afraid there are a few places I'll never be able to visit myself :/ but, at the very list, we still get internet and books to fill in.

@Shoboni, @Frith is Magik, @ElectronDaydream

Hmm...Metis, Blackfoot, and Newfie.  I've never heard of those--what are they?

 

I'm also seeing a lot of Italians, Scotts, and Norwegians!  Go Scotts-Scandinavians!  Also, Romance languages are just cool, so...molto benne, ragazze e ragazzi.

And descendants of Daniel Boone, Jean-Olivier Chénier, and some World War vets!  Neat!

Viking, eh?  That's an cool way to denominate oneself.

 

Blackfoot is a Native American tribe, I honestly don't know much about it at all so it may be a alternate name or something for another tribe.

i've been in the army for one year when i was 18 :) my father did too, probably yours as well, but our dads were forced (NAIA, mandatory italian military service)... i collect ww2 weapons as i have a fire licence... i have quite a bit collection.. those 2 rifles, a britsh lee-enfield, a russian mosin-nagant, an italian carcano/moschetto (the rifle used to kill JFK... an italian ww2 bolt action rifle with a civilian japanese optic sight)... most bolt actions ones.. than i have something that is more valuable then all off them... a german walter p38 pistol :) the same pistol that Hitler probably used to kill himself and the one that Lupin use XD.

Haitian and American descent, since the Haitian part of my ancestry comes from my grandfather. Very surprising, really.

German, Polish, Scottish, and English. My family members of Scottish/ English descent came to the US as colonists, the Polish members came in WWI, and by German grandfather escaped the Nazis (he was a Jew) after krystalnacht. There is actually a very interesting story behind the escape and my military lineage....

 

My grandfather and his parents had forewarning of krystalnacht because my great grandfather served as a German doctor in WWI, and was warned by a former comrade in the SS. My great grandfather hid my grandfather in a wastebasket before being invaded and being beaten by SS officers. They all escaped the next morning.

 

My ancestors have participated in almost every major US war, including the revolution, 1812, the civil war, WWI, WWII, and Vietnam.

salute to your grandfather.. and may i ask sorry for what my ancestors did...

when i was joung i was told: "trasforma il tuo fucile, in un gesto più civile.." (transform your rifle in an act more civil..)

so i joined the red cross smile.png

I am Indian. My parents are from the state of Gujarat, located in West India. I was born and raised in the United States. It's a shame that Indians are underrepresented in the fandom, despite there being over one billion of us.
