Default Does your state (province/area) have a nickname for its inhabatints?

Just what the title says.

I am from Indiana, USA and we are called Hoosiers.

Huh, we must be dull because I don't think so? I think we're just referred Ontarians? As a country we're Canuks.

ACooper, any idea how "Hoosiers" started? Geez, now that I actually typed that I hope it isn't something terribly obvious.

That is a question you'll get different answers about depending on who you ask. It's one of those things that have been around so long that nobody knows the ACTUAL meaning or origins of, LOL Well over a 150 years Indiana has been referred to the Hoosier state.

The explanation I accept is "Hoosier" was the nickname given to the native americans around this territory and just hung on from there. I've heard stories of it orignating from flatboat men too, but who knows?

LostandConfused....I lived in Ohio on Lake Erie for a big chunk of my childhood and I KNOW why you guys are called Buckeyes........they are EVERYWHERE! LOL

Nothing fancy here. The region is known as "NoVA" (northern virginia) or "DelMarVa" (Delaware/Maryland/Virginia) or the "DMV" (same), but I haven't heard anything about the residents. I guess Washingtonians is as close as it gets.
