Milo Yiannopoulos is a British political commentator, polemicist, public speaker, and writer. He holds far right political views.

He was born Milo Hanrahan. His father, Nicolas Ivan Yiannopoullos, is of half Greek and half British Isles [Irish, English] descent. Milo is married to John. He has also been credited as Milo Andreas Wagner.

Milo’s paternal grandfather is named Andreas Ivan Yiannopoulos (whose parents’ surnames were Yiannopoullos and Sotirios/Sotirious). Andreas was born in Marylebone, London, England, of Greek descent.

Milo’s paternal grandmother was Petronella Teresa Hanrahan (the daughter of John Charles Valentine Hanrahan and Alice Maud Leary). Petronella was born in Medway, England. John was the son of John Hanrahan, who was born in Limerick, Ireland, and of Sarah Ann Snowdon. Alice was of Irish and English descent, and was the daughter of William Breaden and Annie Maud Leary, whose own parents were from Macroom, Cork, Ireland.

Milo has said that his mother, or maternal grandmother, is Jewish. It is not clear if that is accurate. His mother’s maiden name is Baker.

He has also said that his mother is German. It is not clear if that is accurate, either.

Milo has said that he is a practicing Catholic.

    Andreas I. Yiannopoullos (the son of ? Yiannopoullos and ? Sotirios) and Petronella T. Hanrahan (? Hanrahan and ? Breaden).

    His father’s name is Nicolas Ivan Yiannopoullos.

    I think his mother will turn out to be half British Isles (maybe Irish) and half German Jewish. Maybe “Wagner” was the surname of his Jewish grandmother.

    If he says his mother is Jewish, why wouldn’t that be assumed? I think he has said that his mother is from Germany too.

    There are a number of websites claiming that his birth name is Milo Hanrahan and that he was born in Kent, England. His grandmother, with whom he was close, was named Petra and she passed away in 2012.
