    Germanic cultures...you know, you spell things with weird letters like "knight"/"knect", you are Protestants, pagan gods like Thor and Odin...

    You know, the same way Madison Grant and Hitler defined them.

    See also the Elder Scrolls video games which differentiate between Nords, Imperials and Bretons.

    I believe Wales is a place where men wear skirts instead of women. 😏

    Yeah, my memory fails me in my old age. However, Wales is close by, right? Nevermind, I found information on Wales here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wales

    Surely you cannot use a definition from a discredited philosophy you don't believe in?

    What are your definitions?

    There is nothing "philosophical" or "discredited" with the use of the term "Nordic" to refer to Germanic cultures.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/nordic?s=t

    Nordic (adj) of, relating to, or characteristic of a Germanic people of northern European origin, exemplified by the Scandinavians.


    Think about where the names of the days of the week came from.

    Tuesday - Tyr's Day
    Wednesday - Woden's Day
    Thursday - Thor's Day
    Friday - Frey's Day

    Viking gods! Not Celtic-Druidic gods.

    I'm familiar with the etymology of the days of the week and know that Nordic in general usage relates to Northern Germanic peoples.

    I was questioning your understanding of "Anglo" and "Nordic" when you said

    Anglos are Nordics.

    The English are a Germanic people. Nordic is a common synonym for Germanic.

    Yes I know England is not part of the political structure known as the Nordic countries. They are still from the same ancestors in northern Germanic Europe. Ancestors the Celtic people do not share. The Celts came from the Alps via Gaul long before even the Romans expanded. Thats why they are called "Alpines" instead of "Nordics".

    The Angles were among a number of Nordic Germanic-speaking tribes who invaded the British Isles shortly after the withdrawal of the Roman legions.

    Women often get 'worn out' by men.
