Santa BS: People from your town called? (93* d) RE: BS: People from your town called? 18 Feb 08


People from Blackpool are described as being "sandgrown". Both my kids were born in Blackpool but disclaim the name, having been brought up on the Fylde. Prestonians come from Preston.

I was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, and am happy at being called a Geordie, as most know what that means. But having spend most of my youth on the Durham coal field makes me a Pityakker - those who talk the language of the pits - pitmatic. Those from Sunderland call themselves Makkems, but that's something that's appeared in the 40 years since I left the area. Anyone from the Tees is a southerner. Anyone from south of the Tees is either a Tyke (Yorkshireman) or a bloody southerner.

My wife is from south Birmingham but is not a Brummie (from brumagem, said to match the local pronunciation).
