If you're from Fort Worth, does that make you a:
Fort Worther?
Fort Worthian?
Fort Worthite?
None of the above?

Just wondering. Thanks.

My vote would be "For Worther." It's funny, I just used that term to describe myself the other day - even though I don't actually live "in" Fort Worth, but very close to it.

Yeah, I think FW'er is probably easiest to say. But I wonder if there's an official term to describe someone from FW, just like someone from Texas would be a "Texan".

I have heard it is "Fort Worther." Doesn't roll off the tongue like "Clevelander" (Ohio) or "Lakewoodite" (Ohio) does.

If you live in Bedford are you a "Bedford-ite" or a "Bedford-er?"

If you live in Hurst are you a "Hurst-ite" or "Hurst-er?"

And here's a good one to consider; what if you live in Euless?

LOL! Somehow Hurster isn't as neat to say as New Yorker...

I am thinking, "Eulessite"...(although, it sounds a little bit too much cellulite)...

True, it doesn't quite roll of the tongue as some other names. I didn't know about Clevelander. Being from NJ as I am, I've heard of "New Jerseyan" and "New Jerseyite". I prefer the former.

Is that the official name of Haltom City? When I first moved here and heard of Haltom City, being originally from north NJ, which is close to NYC, I immediately thought of Gotham City.

I'm not sure if it is the "official" name of Haltom City...but, their signs used to say, "Welcome to the City of Haltom City" (they may still say this...but, I haven't paid much attention lately)...as well as their website...and many other things in print. However...I have noticed that the website doesn't have this in BIG print...but, when you read their pages, they still say, "The City of Haltom City" (notice the caps...so, this is a common noun not a proper noun).

Some examples:

Haltom City Purchasing Department (http://www.haltomcitytx.org/HC_Purchasing/Purchasing.html - broken link)

Haltom City Human Resources (http://www.haltomcitytx.org/HC_Human_Resources/HumanResources.html - broken link)

LOling about "Gotham City."
