Wil,

By the time the Germanic tribes started to form, the population would
already
have been mixed for some time. It wouldn't surprise me if an I2a1 had found
his way that far north that early. Or that far east if (what is it?) M26+
Isles.
So.., saying you're "definitely not Danish" may be an error. We don't know
for certain that the Danes/Germans didn't include *some* I2a1's.
