    I'm Scotch-Irish too. My grandmother was from Ecuador via Spain.

    I married a Cuban who learned to speak English with a southern accent, lost the drawl and now speaks perfect English (not a trace of any regional accent) and will only speak Spanish to his mother (at a high volume).

    My daughters have the surname Rodriguez but speak no Spanish but the older one speaks fluent Japanese. Actually alot of her friends are of Hispanic descent (first generation, too) and they'd be lucky to get a "C minus" in Spanish class.

    Shanazel, I may have you beat. I am half Latvian and the rest is some combination of Irish, French, Scottish, German, Dutch, Ukranian, Austrian, Russian, Polish, and Swiss. So in other words, I too am American.

    Hi!
    I'm Latvian with 1/8 Tatar - so quite boring.

    Well here's another for American melting pot, primarily African with Cherokee from my maternal great grand-father and certainly some European blood is in there too(possibly Irish and English). My aunt was able to trace our family tree on my maternal side to 1840's, beyond that my roots are shrouded in the mists of time and the horrors of slavery.

    Dear Ariella,
    You remind me of my grandson!!!

    His grandparents on his Dad's side, that they know of, are African, Scottish and Cherokee Indian.

    I am Armenian French, Penobscot Indian and Norwegian
    My husband is Polish, Dutch and German

    My grandson says he is "African and Polish". I sometimes call him Mobotu
    Wojohowitzstiviknyevski. ( His name is really William Anderson, which sounds so boring for a person of such colorful ancestry!!)

    Regards,
    A'isha

    I'm half Irish and the rest is English with a bit of Welsh.

    When I was at school I had friends who were the following mixes: Polish/Italian, Chinese/German, Turkish/French and an awful lot of Irish mixed with Maltese, French, Indian, Chinese, Yugoslavian, Greek, Lebanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Mexican, New Zealand, Australian, Afro-Caribbean, Ghana, Malaysian...can you guess I went to a Catholic school?

    Having lived in London all my life I'm not sure I actually know anybody who's English/English!

    In the north there's quite a few English/English, never bin to London before. Looks really big and scary.

    How does one pronounce Wojohowitzstiviknyevski? How about something like that for a dance name?

    Dear Ariella,

    It is a "Polish" name I made up!!

    Wo-jo-ho-ITZ-tiv-ick-NYEV-ski.

    (It was the the Polish thing I could think of besides our own real last name!! My father inlaw is 100% Polish)

    Regards,
    A'isha

    Hmm, well I know I had ancestors from England, and I've got a tiny speck of Cherokee blood, but don't know what else.
