I have blue eyes which is very common among us Ashkenazi Jews. It is not so common though among Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews.

actually, blue eyes and blonde hair is a fairly common trait for italians, especially in the north. additionally, many roman emperors were known to have to blue eyes.

I knew it's common in northern Italy, but my family is from Naples, which is the south.

Same here. Growing up they were bright green, now kinda hazel/green that change depending on the lighting and what I'm wearing.

I'm a northern Italian with blond hair and gray eyes. My family has a sizable number of redheads, too.

I'm amused by the people who go out their way to avoid simply have brown eyes. "Oh but they're hazel!" "They change depending on the light!"

My eyes are actually a unique dark green, which is noticeable in the right light. A DMV clerk wanted to use that on my I.D. However, when people look at me they think they're brown. So, based on over-all illusion, I clicked 'brown' on this poll.

African American and my eyes are dark brown. Everyone in my immediate family has dark brown eyes. I seen a lot of blacks with hazel eyes, which is the second most common eye color among blacks. Blue eyed blacks are the least common.

Here are a couple blue eyed blacks

Had to vote other. They start out light brown around the pupils but turn blue/grey the further out you move. Two tone I guess. My cousin has one brown eye, and one blue eye, that's a trip.

Oh yeah, I'm a white dude, Dutch/German

Just on a side note, the only native Sicilian I've met in real life was blond with blue eyes.
