Seasonal greetings U152 and subclade cousins :beerchug:

I have been thinking of giving our U152 clan 'chief' an actual name. I thought a name begining with U is the most apt!

Ursa (meaning bear. Derivatives of this word are Ursine or Ursini)

Ursini sounds more like a tribal name: 'The Ursini' :)

Other possibles
Ulysses (Latinized version of Odysseus)
Urien (celtic)

* please see above poll

Thoughts or objections ;)

Hopefully when BigY results come in, we will be in a position to give names to his SNP descendants :beerchug::beerchug:

I think just plain old "Ursa" sounds good. Or...if we want to stay with the times of the area...how about "Ulrich?" If all of us U-152s were a tribe or clan in the Highlander Scottish sense, who would be our modern ceremonial chief? Are there any historic dynasties that originate in the La Tene/Hallstatt Celtic areas that are known to be U-152?

Doesn't begin with a "U" but Aeneas of Trojan fame was the legendary ancestor of both the Romans and the Kings of Britain.


Aeneas had an extensive family tree... According to the mythology outlined by Virgil in the Aeneid, Romulus and Remus were both descendants of Aeneas through their mother Rhea Silvia, making Aeneas progenitor of the Roman people...The Julian family of Rome, most notably Julius Csar and Augustus, traced their lineage to Ascanius and Aeneas...The legendary kings of Britain trace their family through a grandson of Aeneas, Brutus.

BTW...UCLII is U152 in Roman numerals and natus meaning born/son

If we take the Britains DNA terminology of s-28, Sperminator would work. :-)
Personally, Ithink that many areas of suspected origin have a mythology of a Dragon Slayer ( St George etc) perhaps that link might work. In other words, a Heroic name dependant on "our" area of origin, based on that mythology. Perhaps Ulrich is very close, although my British ancestors would roll in their graves.

Another idea I like is something based on the "magic" of the La Tene iron workers, and Smiths.

Hi, r1b1b2a1a2d* according to 23andme. That makes me U152?

Is there any informative idiot proof article about markers and nomenclature here for those who are ignorant? According to the McCarthy project on Family Tree DNA, I'm the only r1b1b2a1a2d McCarthy!

As for a clan name? Perhaps the mighty man who started this amazing mutation should be given a mythology. I hear he wrestled several Eurasian mountain lions into extinction, fought rising tides to a standstill and enjoyed long walks on the beach in his spare time.

Hi and welcome aboard the U152 express :)

So are you part of the FTDNA McCarthy project? I ask as you may be able to test for Z36 which is a 'downstream' SNP marker of U152!

If not on FTDNA and would rather save a few $$ then http://www.yseq.net/ maybe the way to go, when Z36 becomes available that is!

Merely coincidence, but Ursus of Solothurn was a 3rd-century Roman Christian venerated as a saint ;)

I like this idea. Of what's been mentioned so far Ursini is my favorite.

Yupp, Ursus, I concur! Ursini is nice too.

I suggest Ursus

Ursus it is, for me anyway :)

As we are "Alpine" perhaps we should go with a mountain goat ? Perhaps Julie Andrews.......( " The Hills are alive.....)
A mountain goat might be more fitting, especially if we are thinking of an animal.
But I do like Brians' bear with a rose...... perhaps the rose should be in the bears' mouth "Ursus Espagnol ?

Well, that would be ok then. I think Tib mentioned that u 152 itself, originated in pre Hebrew Palestine/ Israel/ Levant.

The name should have something to do with a sense of origin, I would think. I have also put forward the Mountain Goat as a symbol, for the Alpine element. At FtDNA, I am 80% European, 20% Levant, but I think many are also at FtDNA, and it may be an aberration....sounds a bit off.

I also wonder about the excitement of finding a u152 at a Black Death cemetery in Holland. So what ? Wouldn't at least 10-20% be u152 ? Its like excavating a London cemetery and announcing that most are R1B. What am I missing /

Hold your horses, it could be a skeleton from a different location.

Likely you are not missing anything, unless of course they sequenced the entire genome and intend on making the raw data available.

I voted for Ulysees as he is the ultimate wandering European Warrior linking his ancestors in Bronze Age Europe L11, neolithic Anatolia M269 and The Balkens L23, Myceae L51 Homers Odessey and the mythical Ithica and Iona via the Pillars of Hercules to the Celtic Isles L21 where he is reincarnated in James Joyce Ulysees.

I opted for Ursa, but not sure whether to adopt this for my U152+ or my new S20550+ :)
