I know what they call people from Goole if that helps. :unsure:

Yep, might aswell. Any that are true is acceptable. The more strange the better.

Portsmouth, Skates

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.

Wolverhampton .... Wulfrunian

Gwent .... Man of Gwent

Hindle

You must be psychic.

Last night I was trying to find what someone from Merthyr Tydfil is called

(and please don't table a suggestion of Dai or Blodwen, thanks very much ) :D

There is a Tydfilian running club but I can't find any other reference.

I come from the village of Garndiffaith and, in common with valley villages throughout Gwent, residents are referred to as being "off" that village. [Actually we are colloquially 'off the Garn')

Torquonian for Torquay, but this isn't a very ancient appellation, Torquay being essentially a 19th century creation. Folk from Exeter are officially Exonian, folk from Plymouth are Plymothians and folk from Newton Abbot are beyond the pale. Cambridge is Cantabrigian, I know. Salopian for Shrewsbury. Birkonian for Birkenhead. Middlesbrovian for smog monsters.

Barrow is Barrovian, Dalton is Daltonian, Ulverston is Ulverstonian' I think Workington is something like Wyrekentonian and I haven't a clue about Whitehaven apart from the derogatory Jam Eaters :).

I seem to remember the Medway was the divide between the Men of Kent and Kentish Man.

I still like the Cowheads adn the Pies though.

Not entirely.

It's what they are known as down this way, allegedly because part of a skate looks like a ladies *ahem* garden of fun and the sailors used to make do after a few weeks at sea.

Portsmouth residents refer to Southampton as "Scummers" allegedly because the Dockers in Portsmouth went on strike at some point in the distant past and Southampton didn't support them. I believe the more traditional name for People from Southampton is a Sotonian.
