BritainsDNA haplogroup nicknames

The following is a list of the Y chromosome DNA haplogroup and mtDNA haplogroup nicknames used by BritainsDNA, ScotlandsDNA, IrelandsDNA, CymruDNAWales and YorkshiresDNA. For many of the Y-SNPs the company uses its own proprietary S series naming system. The alternative SNP names are provided as shown on the ISOGG Y-SNP tree.

Note that the nicknames should not be taken literally. The implied associations with historical groups such as the Picts, Vikings and Berbers are hypotheses which have not been put to a scientific test. Multiple subclades would probably be represented in these historical groupings. The published research databases do not have sufficient samples in certain geographical regions. Because of the random survival rate of Y-chromosome lineages and migration within and between countries the Y-chromosomes of living people will not necessary reflect historical populations.[1]
