LordLoki 's reputation has not travelled afar.

The way I look at it, these terms are interchangeable for us ethnic-spiritualist conscious peoples of Germanic ancestry. But the 2 terms have evolved with different meanings over time. Originally it was geographic with Nordic referring to a region and Germanic is an adjective for language, culture, phenotype, etc. But with romanticism, nationalism, and eugenics ideas of Nordid blood and phenotypes were layered on top. But I suppose today "Nordic" is not only cultural (referring to some raceless welfare state idea) but also geographic (look at the Nordic Council). This is why I see Finns often called Scandinavian or Nordic despite not being Germanic.

To me, if our main way of identifying is blood then Germanic and Nordic should be one in the same.
