Steven Tyler is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and television personality. He is the former lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith. He was born Stephen Victor Tallarico. Among his children are actress/model Liv Tyler (with Beverle Lorence “Bebe” Buell), model Mia Tyler (with Cyrinda Foxe), and musician Chelsea Tyler (with Teresa Barrick).

Steven’s father was of half Italian and half German descent, and Steven’s mother was of half Polish and half British Isles (mostly English, with distant Welsh) ancestry.

Steven is said to have some degree of Cherokee Native American ancestry on his mother’s side. It is not clear if this Cherokee ancestry has been documented/verified.

Steven’s paternal grandparents were Giovanni Tallarico (the son of Alfonso Tallarico and Stella Albi) and Panta Olga Constanze/Constance Neidhart (the daughter of Oscar Neidhart and Olga Keitzman/Kitzman/Kitzmann/Kietzmann). Giovanni was an Italian immigrant, from Cotronei, Catanzaro, Calabria, Italy. Panta was born in New York, to German parents. Oscar was the son of Franz Neidhart and Constance Ranzenberger.

Steven’s maternal grandparents were Felix Carol Blancha (whose surname was originally Czarnyszewicz, the son of Franciszer Czarnyszewicz and Apolonia Miluta) and Bessie June Elliott (the daughter of Robert J. Elliot and Edna Raynette Wheeler or Tibbits). Felix was a Polish immigrant. Bessie was born in New York. Most of her ancestry was English. She also had remote Welsh roots.

andrew October 4, 2014 at 3:14 pm

it should be used

christian March 25, 2012 at 1:40 pm

he looks too exotic to be italian, german or polish

inded he has very strange+ exotic eyes

he looks hispanic or native american

brown eyes are in both germany and italy the most common eye color

germany 44 % and in italy 80 %

but the shape of his eyes are different than of germans or italians

There is not something like looking Hispanic. Spanish speaking people are characterized because they are very diverse, they don´t look the same. And if a “hispanic” look exist , it must be like Spaniard not indigenous, it would like calling Pocahontas Anglo. Steven Tyer don´t look like a Spaniard. You must travel.

TrUtH March 21, 2012 at 8:22 pm

You people must be on something to deny he has native american. look at his eyes and his facial bone structure.
I mean seriously ???

Roger Is My Lover March 21, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Who is denying it? If you give Ethnic a credible source, he will add it to his ethnicity. I always thought he had distant Native ancestry as well.

Kevo!$8 March 21, 2012 at 8:20 pm

That Russian side could actually be Ukrainian as the Ukraine used to be apart of the USSR not so long ago.
