    Brown Eyes

    I am wondering about Brown eyes, and where it is found amongst the Germanic people.

    Does anyone have any info or thoughts on the matter ?

    One word: Everywhere. Quoting myself from Nordfolk:


    Genetics in a nutshell.


    Eye pigment is made up out of 0-6 dominant genes. The parents can pass on the sum of both of their dominant genes at maximum:

    0 - light blue; 1 - grey-blue; 2 grey/blue-green; 3 - green to hazel; 4 - medium brown; 5 - dark brown; 6 - black.

    Hance two parents with blue-green eyes could have children that have an eye color between light blue and medium brown.

    Hair pigment is mainly made up of Melanine. There you have Eumelanine and Phomelanine, but it is enough to concentrate Eumelanine since it answers the question.

    Assume for the sake fo it, that half of the genes determining hair colour come from the mother and father and that each of them pass on 4 genes...now let's use "h" for light pigment and "H" for dark pigment.

    hhhhhhhh - white blonde
    HHHHHHHH - black

    Now assuming that both parents are dark blonde (HHHhhhhh - HHHhhhhh) - [which could well be possible, if their parents were both middle-blonde then they have a good chance to have anything up to light brown[ - all combinations between white blonde (hhhhhhhh) and darkish medium brown (HHHHHHhh) become possible.

    In a way this could work the other way round as well. I will use a family example to highlight this, in fact that is what happened with the sister of my father: Grandmother, dark brown (HHHHHHhh) + Grandfather, light brown (HHHHhhhh) = Aunt, medium blonde (HHhhhhhh)

    Hence, it becomes possible that the children of two blonde, blue-eyed parents can indeed be brown-eyed and brown-haired. Now even assuming that all of their ancestors were of pure Nordid phenotype (whose typical pigmentation is assumed to be medium blonde), so will the children be of pure Nordid phenotype (there are no other racial influences for them) - since, even though the children will have "wrong" pigment, the facial and bodily features will be manifestly Nordid.

    Anything else is a simplification of genetics to push an agenda.

    Everywhere as a generalization.
    Brown eyes would be typical of the Alpinids, Dinarids and Meds as far as I know. So, for example in Germany you're likely to find more brown eyes in the South (among the Alpinids or Dinarids) than in the North (Nordids or Faelids). Brown eyes can also be found in Sub-Nordids to a lesser degree (Brigitte Bardot would be an example) and even in Nordids, though in a very very small minority.

    Brown-Eyed Germanics?

    I seem to meet a lot of Germanic people with brown eyes, myself included. Obviously it is because of the genes held by the parents, but I was wondering if there was a specific region of Europe (or maybe not Europe) where brown eyes are the norm.

    Examples:

    (On the left)


    (On the right)


    (All three)

    Of Europe? Yes, brown eyes are the most common in the South. But since you ask about brown eyed Germanics, then there is no norm. Germanics are the most diverse metaethnic group or all. Some people will say Southern Germany, but you can find plenty of blue and green eyed people there. And you can find brown eyed people in the North. I'm from Berlin and I have blond hairs and brown eyes for example.

    Yes, there are brown-eyed Germanics, even in Scandinavia. The question is quite ridiculous, as there are no Germanic features. When people speak of "Germanic" features, they mean Nordic/Nordid features. The latter is reality, while the first is not. A Germanic can be any type ranging from from Scando-Nordid to Alpinid or Mediterranid.
