Because once you leave Fairfax county, thereís still a lot of old Virginia there.

Iíd replace that with Prince William County. PWC is the only minority-majority county in NoVa.

Thatís because of the weird county/city split. Virginia would probably have a couple more if Richmond or the Hampton Roads cities were in counties.

Does it genuinely feel more Southern than Loudon or Fauquier?

With trembling hand...
Is Cairo still even a city? I haven't been through Little Egypt for quite a while but it was mostly on the skids and fading away last time I was down there.

True. Loudoun gets extremely remote once you get past the parts of the county closest to DC (Leesburg, Ashburn and Sterling).

Fauquier I don't consider part of NoVa, there's still large portions of the county that are undeveloped and culturally it's more similar to Fredericksburg or Stafford than Fairfax.

Faquier, no because it's so rural. Loudon feels southern past Leesburg. I have heard some people describe Loudon as "sunbelt" Take that as you will. Fairfax definitely doesn't feel southern at all.

Isnít the Midwest considered up north? So most of these are self explanatory.
