However, linguists who favor a Latin origin for the word say that Medieval Latin blundus was a vulgar pronunciation of Latin flavus, also meaning "yellow".

Most authorities, especially French, attest the Frankish origin.

An alternative hypothesis was presented by Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost, who claims blond hair evolved very quickly in a specific area at the end of the last ice age by means of sexual selection.

According to Frost, the appearance of blond hair and blue eyes in some northern European women made them stand out from their rivals, and more sexually appealing to men, at a time of fierce competition for scarce males.

Other Reddit users noticed divergences between men and women when it comes to showing how they really feel and how to deal with conflict.

One wrote: 'The girls I've dated have actually been significantly quicker to tell me when somethings (sic) wrong. Another said that men were more likely to give up in disagreements, than women - particularly if they're petty.

Light pigmentation traits had already existed in pre-Indo-European Europeans (both farmers and hunter-gatherers), and long-standing philological attempts to correlate them with the arrival of Indo-Europeans from the steppes were misguided.

It is now hypothesized by researchers that blond hair evolved more than once.Recent archaeological and genetic study published in 2014 found that seven "Scandinavian hunter-gatherers" found in the 7,700-year-old Motala archaeological site in southern Sweden had both light skin gene variants, SLC24A5 and SLC45A2, and that they had a third gene, HERC2/OCA2, which causes blue eyes and also contributes to lighter skin and blond hair.Genetic research published in 20 also indicates that Yamnaya Proto-Indo-Europeans who migrated to Europe in the Bronze Age were overwhelmingly dark-eyed (brown), dark-haired and had a skin colour that was moderately light, though somewhat darker than that of the average modern European.Whether it's the early flirting stages or a long-term relationship, bisexual men and women on Reddit say they have noticed vast differences in their romantic encounters with people across the genders.These range from how they show their emotions to what they are like in the bedroom - with one suggesting that sex with women 'tends to last longer'.For example, the OED records its use in 19th-century poetic diction to describe flowers, "a variety of clay ironstone of the coal measures", "the colour of raw silk", The hair color gene MC1R has at least seven variants in Europe, giving the continent a wide range of hair and eye shades.
