    Looks like Northern French/South Dutch people, which makes sense given the average of your ancestry , but what exactly you want to know ?

    Yes, the only thing I know for certain is that I have German, French (probably more than German), Austrian and Italian ancestry. It may sound silly because as someone born and raised in Germany I am well aware that not everyone here is fair and blonde but I look very different. Everyone I meet thinks I am either Italian or at least from South France. I do have some friends from Egypt and they always said I could be mixed Egyptian somehow and I have to admit I see certain resemblances, even the nose, face shape, dark hair and almost black eyes. But at the same time I do have freckles and that certain light skin that is typical for Irish or Scots. I don't seem to really fit anywhere exactly.

    I've never come across any English, Irish, Welsh or Scottish ancestry in my heritage so far at all. So, I'm also surprised when I see Orcadian popping up in several results for example or is this just because they share some Scandi DNA with the Germans?
    Do not fret my friend! You are simply expressing through your phenotype, what appears to be about 1/3 of your DNA Mediteranian. Genetically you are German! Be proud, all Germans have in their DNA the possibility of looking the way you do and not Scandinavian like. There are a handful of Germans could pass as Italians/Spaniards/Portuguese

    By looking at my dark skin, hair, and eyes, you would never guess I have 50% Atlantic/Baltic DNA. Im full Portuguese! If you took the same DNA and had your genes select your phenotype all over again, you could look like your other German brothers and sisters who are fair. Explain this to people, dont let anyone strip you of your ancestry. Love what you have and know you are GERMAN.

    cheers.
