But what's the collective term for you southerners?


I believe they like to be called "G'vnor".

Dundonian, Warringtonian, Glaswegian, Swindonian, Bristolian, Widnesian, Wiganer...

Jokes aside, what is someone called if there from Hull or Lincoln or Grimsby or Leeds or Newcastle or Wakefield or Torquay or Edinburgh or Exeter, etc.

And what is the term for these names of "people who come from that place"?!

LEODENSIAN /and the one going back to the 12th century,LOINER

Manchester - Mancunians
rest of the UK - unfortunates

Drive by shootian,thats a good one "Manc"you didn't have an traditional name going back 100s of years so you had to invent "Manc"to try to give yourelsves an identity

Really?

I found Leeds is Leodensian, although I dunno if it's "official". I'm hoping not to venture into the p"ss-take territory of Jam Eater, Codhead and Scouser etc. though.

correct
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.

Manc is just a short version of the Roman name for the City no need to invent anything.

Your comments Seems a little harsh for a topic with so much banter.

No offence, but of course we are! :)

it seems to me that Manc is a prejorative term used by critical outsiders, much like Scouser is to Liverpudlians.

My late father was born in Manchester over 100 years ago and always used the term Mancunian.

and this.....

My dad always used the term "Loiner" in a derogatory sense - "a right Leeds Loiner" - a city slicker, bit of a smart alec. Morley where I come from regards itself as a cut above Leeds. ;)
We are Morleans. Those from Ossett where my wife comes from are Ossettonians.
Leodensians is the proper term for those from Leeds - the Union team of Leeds Grammar School Old Boys is "Old Leodensians"
The Leeds history website is Leodis.
I believe people from Slaithwaite are called "Moonrakers"
