    Why not?
    "Germanic" doesnt mean "German".
    The Normans were also Germanic (French nobility which originated from Danish and a few Swedish and Norwegian viking conquerers).

    The Viking colony of the Seine, largely Danish, had Rolf (Rollo/Rollon) as leader from around AD 887. He was the son of a Norwegian jarl. Without doubt, it was under his impetus that, from around the start of 10th century, the Scandinavians became attracted to the idea of settling on a long term basis in the area. In AD 911, Rollo started negotiations with the king, Charles the Simple, in order to formalise the Norman sovereignty which already existed de facto in the lower Seine territories. This resulted, in the same year, in the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte, in which the Frankish king gave up to the Vikings a territory corresponding roughly to the eventual French départements of Seine-Maritime and Eure.

    That's what I figured of course, that's why Argentina only gets an honorable mention. But it kinda seems like an ideal place to live, based on the climate, location, and environment anyway.

    Thanks, I know this, but I meant that I don't claim to be Germanic as I have non - Germanic blood (Romance) too. Back in my post I was talking about my Germanic side - not my entire heritage.

    Honourable mention:
    Argentina (many Germans went here after WW2, much German blood)
    Canada
    Czechoslovakia
    Finland (A few Swedish immigrants, many Finnish people seem Germanic)
    Ireland- (If they're celtic they're germanic)
    Northern Poland (which still has some Geman descendants leftover from Prussia)
    Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia may have some good Germanic blood as well
    Hungary may also still have some Germanic blood left...
    United States

    Question: Are the modern Dutch, Belgian, and Swiss people Germanic? What about Lichtenstein and Luxembourg?
    I'm not not sure why you accept Australia, Northern Italy and Scotland as Germanic without hesitation, but you are unsure of the last five, even the Dutch. I can understand why one might see Flemish and Swiss people as not very Germanic in comparison to Danes or Swedes, but they are almost certainly more Germanic than the English, at least culturally.

    How could Scots and Australians be more Germanic than the Dutch? The Dutch, at least those of the Northern half of the country, would surely be as Germanic as North Germans.

    So how can your Subrace be Nordid?

    I think if you read her post more carefully you would know she never said she thought the Scots and Australians are more Germanic than the Dutch, she asked if they were Germanic also. Her question has been answered.
    The Dutch are, most Belgians are (Flemish), 65% of the Swiss are, nearly all the folk from Lichtenstein are, as for Luxembourg im not to sure i think its mixed German/French but im not too sure.

    If you read my post more carefully you can see I never claimed she said that

    In fact, If I had read her post less carefully I may not have noticed the implications that logically follow from it

    So who was that question directed to?

    You quoted her post saying how you cant understand how she accepts some Germanic countries as Germanic and not others, then you pose the question how can Scots and Australians be more Germanic than the Dutch.

    the "logical implication" is that since noone made that claim and you are replying to her post then the assumption is the question must have been posed to her.

    NordicPower88 of course. You see, if she questions whether the Dutch are Germanic, but Australians etc. are without doubt accepted, then it follows that the latter must be more strongly or certainly Germanic. She didn't state anything explicitly, but it's a logical implication.
    So basically I'm saying 'why question the Dutch, and not those other two?'.

    Besides, my question also had a rhetorical side to it; in other words, Australians and Scots could not be more Germanic than the Dutch.
