While I have a lot of English and some German and Polish in me, I more readily identify with my Irish and Scots heritage. Part of it is due to my surname. Slaven is the anglicized form of Gaelic sleibhen (mountain). A lot of it has to do with finding similarities between my own personal attributes and what I've read up on about the Scots and the Irish. But I do know that the English, Germans, and Poles all have similar traits as well, so it's more that I feel for the underdog (compared to my English heritage) and my knowledge (I don't know as much about German and Polish history).
