look up any word, like yeet:
 
1.
1) The country of your birth
2) The passport you hold of the country you reside.

Simply having an Irish name does not make you Irish! Besides most names starting with Mc or Mac originate in Scotland.

2.
1)the country that you are a citizen of.
2)the country that you hold a passport of.
3)you can claim nationality of a country by birth, descent (child or grandchild of citizens) or naturalization (marriage)

if you are born in a different country from your familys birth, and then you claim that citizenship you are then that nationality. this happens a lot in the irish, italian, british diaspora

Person number one: "Wow! You have blue eyes, a Semetic nose and African hair. What's your nationality"?

Person number two: "American".
