Where do people get their eye color?

I had learned you get it from your personality and I have brown eyes and my best friend has blueish green. Could you give definitions of what the color means?

Eye color is determined by genetics, not by personality if both your parents have brown eyes you are likely to have brown eyes if one parent has a blood relative with green eyes you *could* be born with green eyes... it is all determined by what genes each parent has and by luck of the draw

Eye color is just basically determined by the degree of concentration and distribution of melanin that is found in the iris fibers. Your eye is brown in color because your iris contains this melanin pigment on both the front and back surface, it has nothing to do with personality. As for your best friend, it is the spacing as well as the size of the fibers, determines the blueness or greenness of the reflected light.

I was told the color is determined by the Mother, however I do not have factual evidence to back that up.
