    Icelanders have Irish heritage (mostly from Irish slave women brought by the colonists), but they're not Norse-Gaels. Norse-Gaels were those Norsemen who integrated into Gaelic society and adopted...

    Norse, as in of the languages descended from Old Norse. And Bokmćl is arguably just Danish with a Norwegian accent anyways ;)

    I was channeling the Goths when I made my profile. They are my main...

    I'm Danish, by culture I am Scandinavian above that and lingustically Norse. I am Germanic only by lingustic and cultural affiliation to other Danes, but if I had been born in Poland, learned Polish...

    I study Germanic languages and peoples professionally. I'm here to discuss languages and history, which seemingly few people here know about.


    "Germanic" is not an ethnicity, it's a lingustic...

    Exactly, Germanic is a useless term to base one's identity upon.

    Germanic is a linguistic term. Full stop. If you do not speak a Germanic language you are not Germanic, no matter how much you want to claim to be.

    Good lord that made me nearly cry from laughter. This is not a good foot to start on, and I don't know what's funnier, that you think that Isis is the same as Ishtar, or that you think Ishtar, a...

    If you want non-Indo-European deities, we have the Egyptian cult of Isis which was widely popular with the common people of Rome far beyond Egypt. We also have the adoption of the worship of the...

    That's just patently untrue, we know that Ancient Indo-European peoples routinely adopted the worship of foreign gods. We have the Romans and Hittites as extreme examples.

    I don't get the idea of supernatural nonhuman beings having some concern with the ancestry of their worshipers. Why would they care?

    Or are you saying that they're not real and you just made them...

    The 9 years old thing is actually a myth created after accusations by Shi'i that Aisha was not a virgin before her marriage to Muhammad. Her age was set back extremely far in Sunni canon to try and...

    No time for another person. There is too much for me to do, and too much that I need to do to grow and improve myself as a person.

    There is no connection. Wend and Vandal have completely different etymologies and appelations. Vandal comes from Proto-Germanic *wandilaz, meaning 'nomad', while Wend is from Proto-Germanic *winidaz,...

    Calling them Goths is something of a misnomer. Crimean Gothic is indeed east germanic but it's not actually descended from Gothic
