    Opinion about Roman Noses?

    I have to know, what is your opinion on "roman noses"? I have a roman nose and it comes from my German side of the family.... does this suggest some sort of admixture?

    Anthropologically speaking, there is no such thing as a "Roman nose". Am I assuming correctly that it is something which we commonly know as a Dinarid nose?

    Random exemplars


    Steffi Graf


    Kurt Waldheim


    This wouldn't herald any Romance admixture, it simply means a Dinarid strain, though with Dinarid strains coming into several types, including the Keltic-Nordid (which is considered a "Central Nordid" type), nose convexity is nothing to be worried about.

    The Dinarid type as such would be fairly common enough in Germany, especially Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland. So no, it wouldn't mean any admixture from another folk. And it doesn't even always look like a vulture's beak. Certainly nothing to "be ashamed of" or to "worry about".
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I have this nasal shape and so does my father. I'm not sure about our surname's origin or our male ancestral lineage, but the two possibilities are Irish or South German (Konstanz). I'm currently waiting for my Y-dna deep subclade test because the current results (R1b1b2) don't really narrow it down at all. Does my nose shape suggest a South German origin more than an Irish one?
