Good pictures.

I think you can be a Keltic-Nordid, perhaps a more prominent nose will make a very good exemple. Another optional classification perhaps can be Nordomediterranid. In this case Nordid/Atlanto-Mediterranenan blend. Let's see more comments.

Possibly, or just plain Nordic.

Some extra information ;

I'm from Flanders (Belgium), I have green eyes, i'm tall, slender, and broad-shouldered.

I hope this helps to classify me... I really like to know my subrace!

As far as I know now i'm possibly a Keltic Nordic or Nordid/Atlanto-Mediterranean. :)

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Visigodo and Redjack.

But can I get some more information about Nordomediterranid? Just Nordic with some Mediterranean features?

You could find a lot of stuff by searching this forum for Atlanto-Mediterranean, etc. Also this site has some info on the type.


I think Visigodo meant to suggest that you are a Nordic with some Atlanto-Med influence.

This site has more info on the Nordic types.

I can see an Irano-Nordoid in you, strange though it may seem.

See'ing youre face form, pigmentation and physical description, You're a standard example of a keltic nordic.

Nordid lightly mixed with dinaric/mediterranean/alpinid strains, most common type around central and western Europe.

I agree with you, and I don't think Keltic Nordic quite fits the best.

Like I said on Dodona, "Keltic Nordic" should fit. Its sometimes almost impossible to distinguish Eastnordid Irano-Nordids from Keltic Nordic though, but I'd say the eye region etc. look more Dinaroid influenced than typical Irano-Nordid.

Is this a Keltic Nordic?

No. :)

Suggested classification?

What makes you think so?

Please make your attachments smaller. It is ridiculous to post pictures of size more than 1 MB.

I'm on broadband but still I have no desire to open your attachments. And there are people on modem, so please think about them also.

Indeed, those way way too big. I would resize them myself and delete the originals but this computer I'm on now has no software for it.

Suggested classification? The man is probably hypsicephalic and mesorrhine. He is Nordid/East-Baltid, IMO.

about the size. First time uploading pics. Pics are right size now.

Anyway, interesting topic. He has a typical white American appearance with green eyes and reddish blonde hair so I think maybe Keltic Nordic. I would rather have used measurements but do not have a pair of calipers. I want to hear what others think.

BTW, what does IMO mean?

BTW, what does IMO mean?IMO = In my opinion
IMHO = In my honest/humble opinion :)

I already resized them - and actually made them even smaller then they're now. Anyway... ;)

He looks Alpinid/Cro-Magnid.

Convergence of the temporal area, a flat and low cylindrical vault contour, a strong chin, the distance between chin and lower lip balancing the great upper portion of your face plus the slope of his forehead works in favour of classifying you as Keltic Nordic.

While your nose isn't exactly prominent, and certainly less than aquiline, it's slightly wavy as in a minority of cases occurs in KN; the nose wings appear to recurve, which adds in some pictures a quality of prolific strenght and beakyness. The facial dimensions are moderately long.

In the recurving alae and the front view of the first picture where your eyes crack wide open in combination with the element of convexity in your wavy nose profile filters a glimpse of an "exotic" component through, which is misleading and ought to be explained another way, namely that since some KN are as a matter of fact Nordic-Bell Beaker/Maritime Armenoids hybrids, this combination conjures the East Mediterrenean or Atlanto-Mediterrenean predecessor in the latter component.

Unlike the Asiatic Mediterreneans, however, and Armen(o)ids, the nose tip isn't depressed and that is one of the best and smallest, hence often so easy disregarded ihint to attribute somebody's race to an Atlantic/West European source.

Just for comparison, I uploaded a picture of a what (I think) is a pred. Irano-Nordid guy from my year. I think they do look quite similar facially... especially around the eye region, like Agrippa suggested.

..eh for the record, Irano-Nordoid is just a metrical type not a race nor subrace.
It contains the Nordids (yes Keltic Nordid too),Atlantids,Pontids,Irano-Afghan.

Metrical thus people having mostly these traits:

Long headlength,
Very narrow headwidth,
High facial height,
High upper facial height,
Average nasal height,
Narrow nasal breadth,
Very low cephalic index,
Very high facial index,
Very high upper facial index,
Low nasal index,
Narrow bigonials.

The man on the left appears Mediterrenean with Berid strains (overal broader facial traits).

like Agrippa suggested.

I dont remember, what exactly did I suggest?

I classified the right as Keltic Nordic, thats something I can remember, if its that what you mean. :)
