    Default Who looks more Western European, Brits or Iberians?

    I know this question sounds pretty stupid since both the UK and Spain/Portugal are in Western Europe.

    However, when I ask people about Western Europeans, they mostly tend to think of blonde-haired, blue-eyed and pale-skinned people.

    But is this really true? Shouldn't it be the opposite since Iberians have a more ancient gene pool? Aren't brown hair and brown eyes more Western European than anything else (contrary to the Western European stereotypes)?



    I think Brits are just lighter because they had more Germanic invasions and are located at a more northern latitude.

    What most people think about Western Europeans: Blonde/Red hair, pinkish skin
    The reality: Mostly brown hair, brown eyes

    Do you agree?

    Talking about skin and eye pigmentation in europe is much more worthy in terms of north and south.

    Where are you from? Never heard anyone here using the term "Western European", that even doesn't translate very well: "europeus do oeste?".
    But maybe in Spain they use that term.
