    Exclamation Modern Icelandic Women: Stature, Iris Pigmentation, Etc.

    Well, I lucked out in finding the Iceland Actor’s Union site (http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/leikkonur/leikkonur.htm), so I decided to use the actresses below as a sample population in regard to the stature and iris pigmentation of modern Icelandic women--this may or may not be a valid study for this purpose, I’m not a statistician, but where else is one going to find such data (stature & iris pigment.) ONLINE? And, besides, who would even make a study like this?! A nerd like me, that’s who! LOL Directly below this passage are 144 actresses/‘samples’ all of whom to the best of my knowledge are Icelanders. Below that section is a list of those actresses I have excluded from this study for one reason or another (reasons provided). Below that part is a list of ten actresses who caught my eye for aesthetic reasons, generally--well, I’ll be honest, they’re the crème-de-la-crème of the whole sample population as far as BEAUTY is defined by me. LOL That section is followed by all the statistical tallies, translations, etc.; which is really the ‘meat’ of this study. So, what does this study tell me about female Icelander stature and iris pigmentation? The following: 1.) nearly all adult Icelandic women (95.14%) have a stature of at least 160 cm. or approx. 5 ft., 3 inches; the median or middle-sized woman is 168 cm. or a little over 5 ft., 6 inches tall; 2.) the OVERWHELMING majority of Icelandic women (93.06%) possess blonde irises, with ‘blonde’ defined as ranging from clear/’pure’ blues to green-brown/brown-green (I have ignored light browns in this study because not one actresss in this whole study declared her irises to be such); the median iris color (or the middle iris color) is blue-gray. Approx. 59% of all Icelandic women have irises ranging from either clear/’pure’ blue to ‘dark-blue’ irises. Again, the grand totals are at the bottom of this article. I’d like to thank Willowsprout on Skadi for assisting me with this, she is primarily of Icelandic blood, and it is to her and her fellow sisters of said ethnicity that I dedicate this study…I hope it is considered just by them most of all. I, for one, hold GREAT love and respect for the Icelander Folk.

    170 to 174: (43) 29.86%
    165 to 169: (50) 34.72 %
    160 to 164: (27) 18.75%
    155 to 159: (5) 3.47%
    149 cm. and under: (2) 1.39%

    Note: those with statures ranging from 165 to 169 cm. are the majority group.

    Iris Pigmentation Totals:

    Ljósblár (light-blue): 2
    Blár (blue): 57
    Blágrár (blue-gray): 22
    Blágrænn (blue-green): 3
    Dökkblár (dark-blue): 1
    Gráblár (gray-blue): 10
    Dökkgráblár (dark-gray-blue): 1
    Grágrænblár (gray-green-blue): 2
    Grágrænn (gray-green): 6
    Grábrúnn (gray-brown): 1
    Grænblár (green-blue): 2
    Grænn (green)/Grænleitur (greenish): 19
    Grænbrúnn (green-brown): 7
    Brúngrænn (brown-green): 1
    Brúnn (brown): 9
    Dökkbrúnn (dark brown): 1

    Note: the light blue class above undoubtedly, in my mind, means clear/’pure’ blues; also, some of those declared simply blue are really of this type too, and some of those declared blue are surely darker…pure speculation on my part, though. I’ve put great emphasis on the FIRST color the actress mentions in a compound color and arranged the colors from top to bottom from lightest to darkest.

    Iris Pigmentation Ranges With (Total) & %:

    Light blue to blue: (59) 40.97%
    Blue-gray to dark-blue: (26) 18.06%
    Gray-blue to dark-gray-blue: (11) 7.64%
    Gray-green-blue to gray-brown: (9) 6.25%
    Green-blue to green/greenish: (21) 14.58%
    Green-brown to brown-green: (8) 5.56%
    Brown to dark-brown: (10) 6.94%


    Blues (all varieties): (85) 59.03%
    Grays (all varieties): (20) 13.89%
    Greens (all varieties): (29) 20.14%
    Browns (all varieties): (10) 6.94%


    Blondes (all varieties): (134) 93.06%
    Darks (all varieties): (10) 6.94%

    Well, I lucked out in finding the Iceland Actor’s Union site (http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/leikkonur/leikkonur.htm), so I decided to use the actresses below as a sample population in regard to the stature and iris pigmentation of modern Icelandic women--this may or may not be a valid study for this purpose, I’m not a statistician, but where else is one going to find such data (stature & iris pigment.) ONLINE? And, besides, who would even make a study like this?! A nerd like me, that’s who! LOL Directly below this passage are 144 actresses/‘samples’ all of whom to the best of my knowledge are Icelanders. Below that section is a list of those actresses I have excluded from this study for one reason or another (reasons provided). Below that part is a list of ten actresses who caught my eye for aesthetic reasons, generally--well, I’ll be honest, they’re the crème-de-la-crème of the whole sample population as far as BEAUTY is defined by me. LOL That section is followed by all the statistical tallies, translations, etc.; which is really the ‘meat’ of this study. So, what does this study tell me about female Icelander stature and iris pigmentation? The following: 1.) nearly all adult Icelandic women (95.14%) have a stature of at least 160 cm. or approx. 5 ft., 3 inches; the median or middle-sized woman is 168 cm. or a little over 5 ft., 6 inches tall; 2.) the OVERWHELMING majority of Icelandic women (93.06%) possess blonde irises, with ‘blonde’ defined as ranging from clear/’pure’ blues to green-brown/brown-green (I have ignored light browns in this study because not one actresss in this whole study declared her irises to be such); the median iris color (or the middle iris color) is blue-gray. Approx. 59% of all Icelandic women have irises ranging from either clear/’pure’ blue to ‘dark-blue’ irises. Again, the grand totals are at the bottom of this article. I’d like to thank Willowsprout on Skadi for assisting me with this, she is primarily of Icelandic blood, and it is to her and her fellow sisters of said ethnicity that I dedicate this study…I hope it is considered just by them most of all. I, for one, hold GREAT love and respect for the Icelander Folk.


    Thank you !

    Please keep length of quotes in mind. Keep them as short as possible for everyone's benefit. Thanks. -Nordhammer

    You do know the language, don't you.
    By the way, which language is it?
    Fascinating!

    I got help from the Northern California Icelandic Association and my Grandma can usually answer my questions I know a few Icelandic words myself. I think Suomut2_13 has done so much good research.He is a wonderfully sweet person!

    These I Have Not Counted:
    Yeah, best to leave all the uglies and those who don't fit a Nordic ideal out.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/HildigTh.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix
    She looks Norwegian.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/IngaMari.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix
    Doubt it.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/JohJonas.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix
    Looks Saami.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/Kjuregei.htm (Asian)
    How did Yakuts get to Iceland?

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/Olafia.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix
    What does "Asiatic" mean in your usage? She is homely but looks East Baltic.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/SolveigArnars.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix
    Same as above.

    http://www.actors-union.is/felagar/VigdisHrefna.htm (probably Icelander+Asiatic mix)
    I don't know of any Inuits living in Iceland. She does look a little exotic, but she is not an Inuit halfbreed or anything.

    Thumbs Up Thank Yous!

    I have to THANK Willowsprout & Cosmo. for their support in this thread. Sadly, many seem not to have much of an interest in it, there's more than one person on this site I'm disappointed with in this regard.
