What would they rather be? Irish?
Oh.... they thought of themselves as Goths, Aryans (historical reasons), Persians....
They are facing some identity problems.
I think they are dressing up as Germans( helmets, uniforms from WWII), speaking German gibberish when alone at home ;)
Just joking, but I really don't know what would they like to be. Not Slavs.
But the truth is they are quite mixed with Italians, Austrians, Hungarians and Serbs, so their family names have letters like w, y and others which originally don't exist in their alphabet.
Contrary to Serbs, they always liked to be assimilated by some of their neighbors hating what they really were. Slavs. Now they are heavily mixed Slavs.
But with aspirations to loose that label in time.
