I'd say this individual would be a clear example of a peripherally Germanic person on both ethnic and cultural grounds
    That's a person of half germanic, half gallo-romance admixture, that was born in Gaelic land.

    It is also totally off-topic since the thread starter is not asking about people with partial germanic admixture but about full-blooded non-germanics, that come from lands that are located near to germanic countries, and might be culturally influenced as such.

    It's not totally off-topic at all.

    Both racially and culturally, only a minority of Germanic people are 100% Germanic. Most of the time, there's some form of border-mixing between different ethnic groups and cultures that leads to gradients. Even language has historically diversified mostly in a gradient rather than with clear linguistic borders.

    You still miss the point.

    They would be partially germanic mixed with some other ethnic group, but other non-germanic ethnic groups cannot be "peripherally germanic" because they lie close to Germanic lands (France, Hungary, Finland, Italy, etc).

    IMO, peripherally Germanic countries would be countries that are not pre-dominantly Germanic but that still have many Germanic elements, both racially and culturally.

    Based on this argument, then second/third..etc generation Turk immigrants in Germany should be "peripherally germanic" too.

    Second and third generation Turk immigrants could become Germanic culturally, but never ethnically. That's why I wanted to emphasise the "both racially and culturally" part :p

    And I said second/third generation, implying that they may have intermarried with Germans and have some racial admixture as well.

    Anyways, as I already told you, I better drop it for now, take a walk in the sun, breath some smog, relax, and continue the argument later. :p

    Most second/third generation Turks are still 100% Turkish. Inter-marriage between Europeans and Muslem immigrants is still fairly rare.

    Anyway, one could regard a Turkish-Germanic intermixture as Peripherally Germanic, although that would be a matter of definition. Turkish-Germanic intermixture is quite artificial in comparison with organic bordermixture between eg. Austrian Germans and Czechs and I don't really think they're comparable for this reason.

    I agree with Blood Axis on this one because you can't be "sort of pregnant", you either are or you aren't. But I just wanted to respond to something said earlier about the issue of culture reflecting your tribal identity.. I am a Southern European, and unless I was a German(ic) colonial living in a German(ic) land, then I don't *think* I have the right to call myself Germanic. My understanding of the French language could be alot better, and I speak almost no Italian or Spanish but I still indentify myself thusly even though my language & culture is English(Celto-Germanic). I don't know if this is wrong and I don't really care, but I don't think people who know & have seen (online or not) me would argue against that, even though I am all for the Anglo-Germanic cultural preservation in this land. According to some on this board that would make me Germanic but I am not sure I am convinced of that.. I don't know if this makes sense or not .. it's been a long day. :o
