Are all Poles blue eyed and blonde?

there are many, many many different tribes of Poles including Mazurians, Polans, Silesians, Warmiaks, Pomeranians, Kashubians, Slovincians, Kociewiacy, Borowiacy, Bieżuńczanie, Bobrzanie and many, many others. I'm the first non-100% Polish member on my mom's side of the family wherein everyone has blue or brown eyes (mom-blue, aunt-blue, grandpa-blue, grandma-blue), though my great grandfather had hazel eyes with an orange band around the center. He said that some Poles from Krakow have this orange band and that while it's not only limited to the Polish, it's far more common in a tribe of Poles decent from the Krakow region.

Similarly, post WWI, there are 3 major groups of Poles living in Poland: The blonde-haired, blue-eyed members of the nothern areas where the majority of the population was of German decent (Prussian decent, to be more accurate); the predominately more Russian Poles who usually occupied the eastern parts of Poland that bordered Russia, as well as the southeastern-most parts of the country and lastly, the Poles of Austrian decent, which I am. My neighbor, 7 years ago was named Nowakowski and he was a Russian Pole with dark hazel eyes and "mousey" brown hair. He, his father and his mother had the same hair and dark hazel eyes while his brother had brown hair and dark, almost purple, blue eyes.

I've met some Poles with blonde hair and blue eyes, but they usually have English or German parents as well so I'm really not sure what the ratio is between non-Germanic Poles and b-hair/b-eyes

I'm a Polish lady who's blue-eyed and blonde. I don't consider these features to be undesirable.

Many of my ancestors both male and female, had much darker features.

I'm not sure how true all that is, that you have written up there ? I speak as a blue eyed British born, with both parents Polish,a person who has absolutely no English or German genes..........so the theory doesn't work for any of my family members, lol.......

You're mostly right, Tornado1984.

What about very dark hair and blue eyes?
Or blonde hair and brown eyes?

I was just thinking of the other blonde/blue combinations we find in the world.
I prefer dark hair and dark eyes, but then you never know what hair or eyes you might happen to find.

Funny because i used to prefer blondes when i was just a spring chick out of the nest but over the past few years i have made u turn in this department of my life, strange because i never really thought about why before but this conversation has made me think about it. Its strange!!!

All the poles that i know are blonde with blue eyes.


I wonder if he's found any yet.

Perhaps a better question would be:
'How many Polish people are ginger?'
There are supposed to be a lot of redheads in Ireland, and also in the Udmurtia, a small republic in Russia.
I've known German and French gingers, and a Finnish girl who may have been a bit ginger.

It was a silly question. Let's have more silly answers.

I thought the idea that ALL Poles have blonde hair and blue eyes seemed a bit much.
I'll start a new one as soon as I can be bothered.

A bit much yes ;)

If ALL Poles are like this, so it's the same for Germans, as there are approximately the same percentage of population with blond hair.

But the country with the most blonds is Finland : 3 persons out of 4 (75%) are blond ;)
Scandinavian countries are just below that i think.
Then comes Poland and Germany with some other countries.

But the thread is a question is it not ? It asks 'Are all poles blue eyed and blonde???'

And it's off some interest to Polish people, I can't see anything wrong with the thread question.

Is red hair ( rudy ) in Poland considered lucky ?
Lady in red  
21 Oct 2007  #174

I've never heard that before. Wonder if anyone else has ?

I'm not sure if red hair is that common in Polish people so would be interesting to know that.

Red hair is a part of blond hair gene, but not so many of them in Poland...at least not as many as in the UK ;)

So it would appear that not all Poles are blond and blue eyed then.....a very small minority it would seem are maybe red headed ?

Aha, blond people are not that common. It's a kind of stereotype. I am myself blond, but almost noone else in my family is.

a very small minority it would seem are maybe red headed


I guess...

lond people are not that common.


I was born with blond hair and blue eyes but my hair colour turned light brown when I was about 12 or 13 lol..........it's got some blond bits in it now but that's not all natural <g> My sister had brown hair........and blue eyes.

I never saw anyone Polish with red hair apart from the actress Rula Lenska.
