Q: People from Glasgow are called Glaswegians, but what do you call people who live in Edinburgh?
No, I'm not fucking around here (even though it's my joke). What do you call someone from Edinburgh? For my entire length of time living in Edinburgh, I kept asking everyone I could find who could possibly know. No one who lives in Edinburgh seems to know, unless they're keeping it a closely guarded secret. Maybe you have to live here for years, and you finally know you're an [unknown word for Edinburgh resident] when someone finally says, "Oh, by the way, we're [U.W.f.E.R]s."
In the meantime, my friends and I tried to come up with words to call them. One friend was preferable to "Edinburgundians," but it sounded like something out of Gulliver's Travels to me, so I settled on the safer and more pedestrian "Edinburgheranitegains," trying to cover all the bases by putting all the "resident of this city" suffixes I could into one word.
That should cover it.
