Here are most of the ones I know or have heard for New Mexico cities and towns:


Albuquerquean (Burqueño is the Spanish version and it is widely used as well)

Taoseño (used in both English and Spanish)

Santa Fean

Las Crucen

Rio Ranchoan

Roswellite

Gallupian

Los Alamite (Hilltopper is also used)

Los Lunan

Socorran

Silver Citian

Tucumcarian

Farmingtonian

Alamogordan

Tularosan

Clovisite

Portalen

Artesian

Carlsbadian

Hobbsan

Las Vegan

Ratonian


The demonym for Truth or Consequences is one I've never heard and don't know. I suspect it may be Hot Springer in a nod to the former name of the town.

Colorado Springs = We've never officially come up with one. I don't know, Springsian? Springer? Pikes Peaker?

We're the seat of El Paso county, so El Pasoans I'd guess might work.

Like to see some more cities that don't have demonyms.
