    Can a White Child Have Black Hair and Brown Eyes?

    Can a White child have totally black or really dark colored hair and/or dark eyes?

    I noticed that almost all White children are blond or really light haired when they're young, and they also have really light-colored eyes and as they mature some of them develop a darker hair/eye color. The only exception to this rule might be southern Italy, the Balkans, and perhaps Spain and Portugal but the people in those regions are most likely not 100% "White".

    By White I mean northern Europeans and their descendants around the world (past and present) this would Include Germanics, Celts, real/original Slavs, Balts, and most European Latins (northern Italians for example)

    Have you heard of the Black Irish?

    There's all sorts of theories that they're actually Iberians, et cetera. But according to a Celtic Studies professor I talked to the Irish Celts originally had dark hair and eyes. That the blondes/redheads are the descendents of Viking settlers on the island.

    yes, I know about the Black Irish, they are fascinating to me. My question is however, if I see a beautiful blond Germanic woman with black-haired brown-eyed little children, does it necessarily mean their father is of extra-European (Taurid, Armenid, Amerinid, or Negroid) origins?

    The answer should be common knowledge. Pure "white" people come in all sorts of different eye/hair color combinations. The only conclusive evidence of their heritage is in their face, bone structure, and of course mind.

    Yes, that is very true, but it's still common for White people who are dark in adulthood to be very fair in their younger years. I think it would take very strong 'dark genes' to make a kid black-haired and brown-eyed especially if his mom is blonde and blue-eyed.

    Well, a relative of mine has had dark hair her entire life. Her eyes have always been very blue as well. I'll say I haven't seen too many dark haired and dark eyed white children though. I do think it is possible but pretty uncommon.

    We Mehringers are a dark haired family. Although my father had blonde hair when he was young he grew out of it into brown. He also has blue eyes, ones I didn't inherit unfortunately...
    Actually I get my hair from my Mother who's maiden name is Wagner, and her father's mother was a German Haeger, and mothers Father an English Johnson.
    Actually my father hypothesized I get my black hair-ness from his mothers side who's a Welsh Jones.

    Dark hair with blue eyes is actually pretty common. Many girls around here have the same look as the girl in the Skadi banner.
