    No, they´re Celtic. Both Germanics and Celts share some similar features but Celts aren´t Germanic.

    Celtic is a culture. Not a race. Celtics and Germanics however share same racial and sub-racial groups. There are Nordic Celts.

    No, Celts are not Germanic. I'm getting tired of all these "Are X Germanic?" threads (yesterday, we had one about Poles). Maybe we should have an official FAQ thread on this subforum, to answer these queries?

    They often do share racial groups, since there is a natural "ecocline" in geographic areas over time. For instance, the Celtic and Germanic natives of the British Isles don't look too different from each other. There's a huge overlap between them. On the other hand, there are a fair few Celts who have a definitely non-Germanic appearance (Wayne Rooney being a good example).

    There are Nordic Celts.
    No, there aren't. There are Nordid Celts, on the other hand.

    No, they're not, but being half Celtic and half Germanic I can say I am proud of both my heritages.

    It does sound like a very stupid question, the reason I ask is because I once saw a diagram/map showing native areas for Germanics, and it covered all the Celtic areas too.

    No, but do feel free to take up a matter where there is some overlap HERE.

    I have read that there is no proof that some celts WERE NOT Germanic. Seeing as Caesar used the term "German" very loosely.
