Fun Facts

In humansgenes vary in size from a few hundred DNA bases to more than 2 million bases. The Human Genome Project estimated that humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes. Every person has two copies of each gene, one inherited from each parent!

Think like this...we all are made up of pieces from all our parents, ancestors, and more...we share common threads with all things on this planet, which means you are even related to squirrels. Next time someone asks you who your cousin is, point outside, find a squirrel and say, "That One"!

The origin of the name Cimbri is unknown. One etymology[2] is PIE *tḱim-ro- "inhabitant", from tḱoi-m- "home" (> English home), itself a derivation from tḱei- "live" (> Greek κτίζω, Latin sinō); then, the Germanic *himbra- finds an exact cognate in Slavic sębrъ "farmer" (> Croatian, Serbian sebar, Russian сябёр syabyor).

The name has also been related to the word kimme meaning "rim", i.e., "the people of the coast".[3] Finally, since Antiquity, the name has been related to that of the Cimmerians.[4]

Himmerland (Old Danish Himbersysel) is generally thought to preserve their name;[5] Cimbri with a c would be an older form without Grimm's law (PIE k > Germ. h). Alternatively, Latin c- represents an attempt to render the unfamiliar Proto-Germanic h = [x] (Latin h was [h] but was becoming silent in a common speech at the time), perhaps due to Celtic-speaking interpreters (a Celtic intermediary would also explain why Germanic *Þeuðanōz became Latin Teutones).

Because of the similarity of the names, the Cimbri has been at times associated with Cymry, the Welsh name for themselves.[6] However, Cymry is derived from Brittonic *Kombrogi, meaning "compatriots", and is linguistically unrelated to Cimbri.[7]
