Alyssa Miller is an American model. Her ancestry includes German, Slovenian, English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh.

Alyssa has been described on the internet as having Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been documented/verified.

Alyssa’s paternal grandfather is Kenneth Theodore Miller II (the son of Theodore Kenneth Miller and Irene Marie Okleshen). Alyssa’s great-grandfather Theodore was the son of Arthur Russell Miller and Ann Beatrice Standen, who was from Minesing, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. Irene was born in Illinois, the daughter of Slovenian parents, Charles Oklescen/Okleshen/Oklešen, with family from Praproče, and Alojzija/Louise Klemenčič, from Gotna Vas, Novo Mesto, then in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Alyssa’s paternal grandmother is Dolores Joan DeRuntz (the daughter of Nicholas Richard Deruntz and Dorothy A. Hallihan).

On her mother’s side, Alyssa is the granddaughter of Everal Albert Songer, Jr. (the son of Everal Albert Songer and Minnie Dorothy Cramer) and Joyce Elaine Sullivan. Alyssa’s great-grandfather Everal was the son of Jesse Albert Songer and Daisy Ada Gilmore.

Is it clear that she has Austrian ancestry? Just because the birthplace of her great-grandmother’s parents is “Austria” doesn’t mean they were ethnic Austrians. “Okleshen” and “Klemencic” aren’t Austrian surnames. And when it says that Charles and Irene were born in Praporče (in Czechoslovakia), I think it’s meant to be Praproče (in Slovenia).

As I already said 3 out of 4 of her Austrian ancestors were in fact Slovenian, the remaining one I’m not sure about.

Oh, right, didn’t read the previous comments.

I assume you’re not sure about Irene’s paternal grandmother, Mary Oberstar. But I think that, since her son married another Slovenian, he (Irene’s father) was probably also born in Slovenia, making it reasonable to assume Mary wasn’t Austrian. Plus, there is quite a few Oberstars in Slovenia, according to this:

Her description on
“Daughter of a farmer, 1/2 Hubler (2.8 acres) in Velki Podljubno, Slovenia, Austrian Empire”

She was definitely also from Slovenia, but as you know Slovenia is not monocultural. I also believe she was Slovenian but just can’t claim it to be 100% true.

Alojzija (Louise) Klemenčič was surely Slovenian. Her father was Jožef Klemenčič and mother was Marija Jašek, both very Slovenian. She was from Gostna Vas, Novo Mesto.

*Gotna Vas
Ugh, me and my fat fingers…

Martin Oklešen was born in one of several places called Praporče in Slovenia, plus with his slavic last name it’s safe to assume at least three quarters of her ”austrian” is actually slovenian (I added in the Klemenčič line too, since you don’t get a more slovenian name than Klemenčič)

It says she’s Native American on Wikipedia.

She looks a lot like Mexican model/tv personality Marisol Gonzalez & Blanca Soto

Her face reminds me of a fox; Emily Ratajkowski’s reminds me of an ostrich.

ashash October 14, 2014 at 12:12 pm

Both Alyssa and Emily are striking models.

ashash October 14, 2014 at 12:13 pm

And yet their faces remind me of very specific animals.

seems about right, i think her eyebrows and tan are throwing people off making her look “exotic”

ashash August 15, 2014 at 12:15 pm

She doesn’t look exotic to me, even with her eyebrows and tan.

She looks English she has the face of a English person it’s hard too tell English people Irish people Scottish people and Welsh people apart lots of people in England have Anglo Saxon Irish Scottish and Welsh ancestry that mix is very common in England and Wales lots of Irish Scottish people and Anglo Welsh people have mixed with eachother over the years.

roman2886 July 15, 2014 at 2:20 pm
