My fiance has similiar eyes!

I've been with him for five years and still catch myself going "Oh.. I thought they were brown two minutes ago.. But I guess they're green again."

Wow.. He has really pretty eyes.

I know an African American with one green eye and one brown eye - sounds a little weird, but it's really very pretty. She also has very light skin. ... She has a joke that "something must have happened somewhere in my family" Very pretty eyes

Default eye color

I am of German descent on both parents' sides. My mom, dad and my two sisters and I all have medium blue eyes. Not too unusual, except one sister is more olive-skinned than anybody else on either side of the family.
As for the comments about violet eyes, if I wear a purple (amethyst or violet, not maroon or something purple-brown) shirt, my eyes tend to look violet.
There are a lot of people of German descent in Greater Cincinnati and I know many people around here with blue eyes.

Wow this poll is surprising, I thought that Black/Dark Brown eyes would be like 2/3, but it's only 1/4.

I have dark brown eyes (look almost black in dim light), and am of Puerto Rican & Southern European descent.

Mine change color, too. When I was younger they were brown, but I keep getting told now that they are different. Hardly anyone sees them when they are brown. I get it from my dad.

I have blond hair and blue eyes, which is rare for the area I live in since most are southern italian. Most around here have brown hair and eyes. It certainly attracts the guys to see a girl who doesn't look italian. (Even though I am italian, I look more like the german and irish side. Rest of the family has brown hair/eyes).
