But what exactly are we talking about? Well, nicknames for residents in the town of course! Thankfully, we've got some help with finding them out.
KXAN Helps Us With Nicknaming
Recently, KXAN polled their audience for what certain local residents from towns should be called. So for example, according to the responses the organization received, someone from Cedar Park should be known as a Cedar Parker.
One of our personal favorites? People from Pflugerville should be called Pflugervillians. Absolute perfection isn't it?
Not every city in Central Texas is mentioned however. So using the tips provided in the data collected, we can ascertain how to call other towns!
First let's examine Killeen. Using the same guidance that was put in place for Austin, which Texans from there are called "Austinites," it seems citizens for Killeen should be called "Killeenites."
Same could go for Belton too! "Beltonities" could fit just as well. But we run into an issue with Temple and Copperas Cove. There isn't really any rule stated by KXAN to help coin a nickname for them.
