That means creating another thread and we're 7 pages in. I'm lodging Portuguese as an informal option. So far I have three informal votes for Portus Cale.

Tied with Italy now.

Do another poll, using the other options.

Translates "The Old Guard dies, but does not surrender!"

Welsh/Irish :love:

Dats me. Well. 25% of me.
My surname is a typical Irish surname even though I don't look Irish lol.
I always wanted to marry an Italian when I was younger. I liked the way they seemed to be very family orientated and had their big family festivities and of course I love their authentic Italian food.

And only three? Man I'm a real mutt. My heritage covers six or seven of those options easy.
No, I have six (that I know of) but only three come under the European banner.

Yeah, I would have guessed you're Spanish judging by the profile pic.

See, Italy is popular!

I have no preferred ethnicity, but I'm trying to charm a Brazilian girl right now. We'll see how far that goes.

Oh see I'm a thoroughly European mutt. What isn't under the European banner if you don't mind my asking?

Italy would be fascinating to visit. I think anyway.
Good luck with the Brazilian girl, if it works out for you you can give advise to the rest of us singles of what to do and what not to do lol.

I'm counting two votes for Portugal though. Which means y'all are tied for second with Britain.
2 votes for Portugal but it isn't on the list... How? Did someone else bombard you with Greta as well?:LOL: And so u counted us?
Ok then i won't cast a vote then...

If i was to change it i would do this...

Remove Switzerland, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Ireland.Cos they haven't really ever been big achievers of anything. Ok Belgian chocolate is number one and the Swiss are famous for their watches but still. Ireland is part of Britain or the UK and Czechoslovakia doesn't exist anymore it split in two...

And add...
Greece... Do i need to explain... Cmon now
Scandinavians under one banner, the Vikings... Again, most people know the Vikings
Portugal... See Greta if unsure
Last one is a bit tough but id put in Russia

Maybe put Italy in a group with the Vatican (Holy Roman Empire)...

Switzerland gave us Calvinism. Even if you don't like it, it's easily one of the most important religious movements in world history.

My brother-in-law is from Belgium. It stays.

Czechs are more Eastern than Western, but the CIA still considers them Western Europe for some stupid reason.

I admire Ireland, but I agree. Could be British.

Greece is Western, but I wouldn't call it Western European. More Southern Euro..

Scandinavians are in a class of their own.

Yes, Portugal should be an option.

Russia is Eastern Europe. Anyboy who says otherwise is on drugs.

Does that come from legitimate knowledge of our history or a spelling error???

Cos before its formation Potucale was the name of the County of Portugal...
Not many people would know that outside of Portugal i would of thought

Sorry i missed the western part... Fair enough... Greece is in the east...
You could use the old iron curtain to split Europe.. And the Vikings would miss out too...
Awww i like the Vikings, great navigators as well
