    Nationality = birthplace. Ethnic origin = parents.

    Where you've lived = where you've lived lol. If you move to, say, Australia, you won't suddenly lose your British nationality and become Australian - is that makes sense.

    So I'd say you're British.

    Edit: As the comment above says, English, Welsh and Scottish is all British at the end of the day anyway.

    This is something I've wondered a long while, and people seem to disagree with me. I'd say that I'm English but some say I'm welsh.

    I was born in England, but raised and have lived in wales right on the border for all my life. Most my family lives in England so I spent time equally in each country seeing relatives. Both parents are English born (and to english parents).

    So what does determine nationality more, birthplace? Parents? Or where you've lived?
    like others said you are British! that is your official nationality.
    whether you are english or welsh is up to you really, I don't think it has a real official status anyway.

    Nationality is decided by birthplace and the nationality of your parents - that's what I've always thought. That's why some people can have dual nationalities, for example if their parents are British but they're born abroad, say in America. Then they can have both an American passport, and a British one.

    English and Welsh are not nationalities that are recognised in any meaningful sense.

    Being British is boring. Being English/Welsh is fun. (see: six nations)

    Right. English is not a nationality, and neither are Welsh or Scottish. Ethnic origin is a different matter.

    As far being Welsh or English depends what you feel like more.

    I was told off once for being racist by taking the priss out of a white welsh guy by saying that he shaggerd sheep!!! WTF!

    I knew someone who kept saying "I'm the only Scottish person in my family," Idiot. Simply for that fact that he was born up there then spent the rest of his life in England.

    Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are all dragged into the UK as one country, like it or not.

    Do you feel Welsh or English? It's all up to you. Which ever one floats your boat.

    I'd say English because that's where your family are from and most of your family is there.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I consider my nationality Scottish because it's what I identify most with. Many people in England, Wales, Northern Ireland will say the same thing.
