    Hail from US

    New here, not looking for attention or anything, but I figured I should post introductory before anything else. I am a big proponent of preserving all things Northern European/Germanic in its entirety, and while I support all kinds of European descent related nationalism, I believe that North/Germanic related people and their cultures are special, and should be maintained separately from those outside of their realm. That being said, I do not know how well I fit here (due to my primary two ethnicities), but I identify with all nordid peoples, and I definitely feel that I am Germanic in mind and spirit.

    Unimportant but I have brown hair, red/brown beard (too coward to have a full beard yet), green eyes, very fair. I don't like the Sun very much, Sun burns me. Only saying this to give you a little idea about who I am. I love the cold, ice and snow, the North. I feel that it is our home, and that it has made us what we are. I have a small obsession with Norway and Sweden, particularly Norway because of its mountains! I wish to learn Norwegian, and also hope to understand Swedish and perhaps Danish to some degree because of their close relation (all three). Would like to visit Norway some day, as well as Sweden, Ireland, and Scotland. Forgot to add Denmark too, pannekake land!

    Welcome here, Einarr. We prefer all new members to provide an introduction so we can size them up a little, and perhaps point out a few discussions which he/she might find of interest... so don't worry that someone might think you're looking for attention.

    Any reason you shy away from the Germanic Anglo-American ethnicity? English together with Scottish and Irish ancestry isn't atypical for that category, correct?

    Oh, well I could definitely identify as Anglo-American, sure. I think I just have a bit of ignorance in that, to me my ethnic groups were of who I'm a descendant of. In my case Scottish, Irish, and English. Would it be better for me to see those as ancestral, rather than ethnic? I noticed many here from the US will have Anglo-American as their ethnic group, while others do not. I suppose my definition of ethnic group is incorrect, and I should consider where I was raised along with culture (thus me being Anglo-American).

    Thanks everyone, for your replies.

    Yes. It sounds to me as if you're currently using the definition of ancestry for ethnicity. Speaking in terms of one person's ethnic groups (plural) could also indicate a misconception.

    Maybe some are liberal with the narrow definition of ethnicity if they have non-American parents and view themselves as nowhere near assimilated, or maybe some are actually immigrants themselves, but in all likelihood most are (Anglo-) American as well, and are just being stubborn with their ethnicity label.

    And that's how easy it is.

    Something I've brought up in another post is that my surname is actually Anglo-Saxon, yet as far as I know it came to the Americas from southern Scotland. I honestly don't know how correct it is for me to identify as part "Scottish," but I assume that particular family was both Anglo-Saxon and Scottish or Anglo-Scot if that makes sense. They also could have been mainly English though, I wish I knew. Anyway, it might be better for me to say Anglo-Scot instead of Scottish.

    Is anyone familiar with surnames like mine? I'm sure your guess is just as good as mine, however. Saying that I don't know how well I fit here due to two of my ancestries was a bit rash as well, that was mainly because I didn't think of Scotland as "Germanic" exactly, even though it partly is.
