This is why I have tried to come up with a Persona that matches my ethnic 
German:  Descended from a Baron (which Barons were a dime a dozen)
English:  Probably guttersnipe due to my pithy remarks from time to time
Scots:  Graham/Montrose-The only Marquis to be hung and quartered
Irish:  Tints of red in hair and can have a vicious tongue from time to time
Scot-Irish:  MacBride

Knowing what I know of my family, there were probably 
Norse/Viking/Gaul/Celtic all mixed in somewhere as we tend to mix rather 
than match.
