    Re: Cognate gods names (Ind-Eur)

    That's rather defeatist. What's the conclusion? "Never mind"?

    Bear in mind, they are your points.

    Subjectivity/experience should not enter into it. Evidence, and support for the interpretation...

    As requested (apparently), here is a reconstructed derivation of ON and OHG forms from PGmc. *thunraz, *thunaraz. All developments are regular:

    You are hard pressed to convince anyone that these central items are not cognate. The attempt to disprove this constitutes a gratuitous and perhaps even irrational act in itself. ON Thórr derives...

    Re: cognate gods names (Ind-Eur)

    I doubt it. Woden, Odin etc. are derived from Proto-Germanic *wôdanaz, alternatively *wôdinaz (< *wôdenaz), constructed on the nominal *wôthuz, which conveyed the notion of "spiritual rage" or...

    Re: Olli Lindholm, rock musician.

    I mostly concur with the comparison of Pearce and Lydon, although Pearce has more obvious Cro-Magnoid features.

    Re: Classify a Russian Nobleman

    Mostly Nordid and Dinarid (or some other Taurid), with a dash of something else (rather great interorbital diameter for either of the two types).

    Re: AW: Re: Modern day descendants of the Goths?

    According to Semino et al. 2004, I1a, the subclade which accounts for nearly 100% of hg I in Scandinavia, is present in Catalans at 3.1% and in Portuguese at 1.3%. It was, however, not found among...

    Re: AW: Re: Modern day descendants of the Goths?

    The Proto-Germanic form was *gautaz, pl. *gautôz, the ON form gautr, pl. gautar. The OE form, gêat, pl. gêatas (pronounced ~/'jæut(as)/ or ~/'jæatas/), derives diachronically from the Proto-Germanic...

    Re: Sv: Modern day descendants of the Goths?

    The connection, if any, between the Gautar/Götar and the Goths is heavily debated (e.g.: the Goths spoke an East-Germanic dialect, and there is so far no evidence that any Germanic language but...

    Lydon is mostly Keltic Nordid, probably with less important North-Atlantid and insignificant Cro-Magnoid elements.

    In my opinion (as a Norwegian), yes. I would have no immediate reason to doubt a claim that he was fully Norwegian.

    Re: Classify Kevin McKidd

    I agree, his CM features are salient, still imo they are not outside the range of mostly Nordoid blends like Trønder. His general head shape and body build is also more Nordoid than Cro-Magnoid.
