LordLoki 's reputation has not travelled afar.

The way I look at it, these terms are interchangeable for us ethnic-spiritualist conscious peoples of Germanic ancestry. But the 2 terms have evolved with different meanings over time. Originally it was geographic with Nordic referring to a region and Germanic is an adjective for language, culture, phenotype, etc. But with romanticism, nationalism, and eugenics ideas of Nordid blood and phenotypes were layered on top. But I suppose today "Nordic" is not only cultural (referring to some raceless welfare state idea) but also geographic (look at the Nordic Council). This is why I see Finns often called Scandinavian or Nordic despite not being Germanic.

To me, if our main way of identifying is blood then Germanic and Nordic should be one in the same.

I never thought there was much of a historical difference.

The Germanic tribes lived more inland, those by the coast were called "Norsemen", and the few who went to sea were called "Vikings".

Indo-European 's reputation has not travelled afar.

I understand that the origins of Germanic culture and language lie in Southern Scandinavia during the Nordic Bronze Age (which of course developed from the common Indo-European culture & language that expanded all throughout Europe during the Bronze Age). In my view the original Germanic culture that developed during the Bronze Age is Nordic and vise versa. Only later did Germanic and Nordic begin to diverge a bit. That's my understanding at least.

Modern day Germanics have branched off linguistically but are still more or less the same people genetically/racially. Although in countries such as Germany (particularly Southern Germany), Austria, The Netherlands, and Switzerland the Germanic tribes must have absorbed more Celtic tribes than Germanics who stayed further North. But it appears that some Celts from the British Isles were likely taken back to Scandinavia during the Viking Age which doesn't surprise me.
