Hiya, my name is Ainsley-Mair (Ainsley is Scottish and Mair is Welsh lol). I'm from Wales, although i do have Irish ancestors.

I guess i have a question really, i read today that theres different types of celts, Goidelic and Brythonic?! i never knew that! whats actually the difference? i know that Irish, Scottish and Manx are Goidelic and that the Welsh, Cornish and Breton are Brythonic. So does that mean that people of Goidelic and Brythonic origin arent related? or distantly related? sorry i'm just really interested in Celtic history, being a Celt myself. ;)

Thanks alot and peace out. xoxo

These are just different classifications, and I've only ever used them personally in regards to the languages P Celtic- Cornish, Welsh, and Breton and then Q celtic- The Goidelic languages such as Gaidhlig, Irish, and Manx. They are related, but at the same time all have differences of their own.

Ah okay thanks for the reply. :) Its just i know the Irish and Scots have red hair but the Welsh are said to have very dark or black hair. Then i heard about Bythonic and Goidelic. Though everytime i meet an Irish or Scottish person, when they realise i'm Welsh they usually make a nice big fuss that i'm a fellow "Celt" lol!
