How can you tell the difference between European ethnicities?

I can't help but thinking that's kind of rude towards him, dear Mr. Kinkybear.

sometimes...

I noticed people from northern europe, like norway, sweden, holland ect., the people are tall and generally have blond hair and blue eyes.

The rest I don't even bother guessing

I guess it's not all that easy. Generally though, I can pinpoint it pretty well. For example, I'd recognize fellow norwegians ANYWHERE. It's in the way we walk and talk and behave and dress. and then it's in the looks. I've been taken for being several ethnicities though; dutch, french, swedish, english, american, canadian and icelandic. I guess most people really can't tell. Mostly they just see me and say "nordic!", which I am, but it's not exactly specific.

Mediterranean people are my lost siblings; dark hair, pale skin, excessive body hair...my lost family.

Germanic people (Germany, Austria, Denmark, etc.) are tall, and usually blond.

Celtic people are like a blend of Mediterranean and Germanic people.

Nordic people tend to have triangular faces.

East people are like a blend of Mediterranean people and Nordic people, but usually with small body frames.

But of course, the easiest way is by their language; I can tell the difference between most European languages; I understand all Latin languages, I can tell the difference between a Germanic language, and a Slavic language just by listening someone talking.


I'm sorry but you have it a bit wrong... Mediterranean people are tanned. Nordic people ARE a germanic people. For example, the danish, norwegian and swedish are of the same people entirely, vikings. Icelandic people are a mix of danish, norwegian and irish people. East people are their own people entirely. they're slavic!

Sometimes depending on the accent you can tell but not very often.
Posted 7/6/09
Good question.. I really don't know, I guess by their accents. and facial features.

So hard to tell....

Physically, you can't.

Solution: Ask/stalk them
