    Default Hazel eyes.

    What part of Europe do Hazel eyes (the kind where Brown and Green are mixed in a sense) originate? And, where are they most common?

    Thanks in advance.

    Same here, the reason I asked was because since I'm mixed I wanted to know what part of my ancestry I got them from. Especially since I don't know anyone in my family (both sides) with that eye color.

    Also, Geto are you a full-blooded Romanian?

    I have deep heritage in the Carpatho-Danubian area probably back before the Thracians...maybe even back to the neolithic.

    You should take a look at my DNA results from 23&me, DNA tribes etc. They all agree, I'm as pure as any Romanian gets.


    My mom and brother have brown eyes and my dad has blue-grey.

    I think hazel comes from this kind of mix due to recessive blue allelles on my mom's side being dominated by the brown.

    I'll look through your DNA results. And, do you have Latin blood?

    The mixing would make sense since my mom has brown eyes, and my dad also has blue eyes.

    Well, we are latins and I think this is not even necessarily due to Roman influence...Romans did come to Italy from the Carpatho-Danubian area too, before they ended up in Italy.

    Romanians do cluster with other latins from europe on autosomal charts like Polako's and Dienekes'.

    So, if you mean, Italian blood or something like that--no, I'm 100% Romanian as far back as anyone in my family knows--on BOTH sides of my family.

    Hazel eyes are common in the following countries and regions such as Romania, Czech Republic, Austria, France, Spain, Bulgaria, Greece, England, Portugal, Italy, Hungary, Eastern Germany, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, West Asia, Eastern Russia, Estonia, and Montenegro.

    i made this map that looks wierd. also i found this on a site

    Very little is known about the genetics of hazel eyes. Whilst biology can explain blue, brown and green eyes, it's left to theoretical models to fill in the gaps for hazel eye color

    Yeah, I remember you telling me about the Romans coming to Italy from the Carpatho-Danubian area the other day, but just try telling an Italian that. lol.

    Not surprised either by them clustering with the other Latins I just have a tough time convincing ignorant people in real life of this, and no I wasn't referring to Italian blood.

    Another, thing do the 23andMe tests tell the exact location (like region of a certain Country or continent( of your blood/ancestry?
