Refraining from voting as a single choice would not seem to make sense - there is no split option.
  • First Name = Celtic / Gaelic, an old hunters name & associated with a mythological pre-Christian Irish king
  • 1st Middle Name = Celtic / Welsh (androgynous), mythological pre-Christian
  • 2nd Middle Name = Germanic / Gothic, a historical conquering Gothic king's name
  • Family Name = Germanic / Anglo-Saxon, a very old English toponym, whose German equivalent is only a couple letters different in spelling but pronounced very similarly

I don't know what to choose, my first name is the Russian pet form of the latinised version of a Hebrew name. My last name is a German name.

This thread is actually about the ethnic origin of first names only, not surnames. But someone seems to have started a trend at some point in this thread and this is where the confusion stems from.
If we were to include both first and last names, and even middle names, we'd end up with an unfeasible large poll.
The corresponding thread for surnames can be found here.

Hrodebert 's reputation has not travelled afar.

First name's a very common germanic name, middle name's a variant of a germanic name, and last but not least a patronymic norwegian surname.

My first name is the anglicised form of a Hebrew biblical name. I wish traditional names were taken more seriously in American society, but sadly biblical and "exotic" names have taken much more root than proper ones.

It's Old English and refers to a plant. Pretty much my entire name is derived from flora - I like that

My first name is a Celtic word/name, my middle name is an English word and name for a saint, and my last name is a French name for a town in France, God give me strength.
