Place Names

I like it when people from a place are called something unexpected.  People from Glasgow are Glaswegians.  People from Liverpool are Liverpudlians.  I find it charming.

per w'pedia: "Inhabitants of Liverpool are called Liverpudlians or Liverpolitans but are more often described by the colloquialism "Scousers"."

That is even better than I thought. Wikipedia informs me that "Liverpudlian" stems from Liverpool's derisive nickname "Liverpuddle," which is pretty great.

I believe Gladstone was a Liverpudlian. It is hard to think of him as a Scouser.
