    Me and @follers had an exchange while back about the fluidity of Eastern Europe/Slavic world ethnicities. For example Joe Manganiello’s ancestors were listed as Slovenian speakers (I found a few others as such that are thought to be Croatian) on U.S. Cenus and Dianne West’s Cosulichs were evidently Italian. Have a look if you don’t mind (also this profile).
