I just came back to read this thread...and, noticed I had a typo in my post! ARGH! Obviously it is too late to fix my typo. But...here is what I meant to type:

...but, when you read their pages, they still say, "The City of Haltom City" (notice the caps...so, this is a proper noun not a common noun).

I live in Fort Worth, and the proper term is actually "Fort Worthian". At least that's what I've always heard.

Personally, I think if you live in Fort Worth, you are called "Lucky", or perhaps "Smart". I just love this city and all it has to offer!

That's interesting. I wonder if Mayor Moncrief even knows the official term. (I just learned who our mayor is .)

Buckeye kinda stole my thunder, but I believe those that are from Fort Worth are called "Better."

Relax, it's a good natured joke

I'm also pretty sure it's Fort Worthian.

I'm guessing it would be one of the following:
Arlingtonite
Arlingtonian
Arlingtoner

None of them roll off the tongue. But out of those 3, I'd choose the 1st or 2nd.

The home of the five-minute traffic light? I really don't know. Beowulf7, it's bound to be one of those three. I'd say "Arlingtonian" has a nice ring to it, but that doesn't make it the right one.
