Default What are people who live in Maine called?

There are Texans, Washatonians, Floridans, New Mexicans, Oklahomans and Coloradoans but I have never heard what a person who lives in the state of Maine is called. Mainards, Mainiacs or what?

My mother has always been offended by anyone referring to her/us as a Mainiac, like we were some sort of crazy person. We are Mainers, as I remind everyone I meet in this crazy ass city I live in!

My best friend calls herself a Mainiac! She was born in Maine and has lived there all of her life.

Mainer. A Mainer may refer to him/herself or other native-born Mainers as a Mainiac in a humorous moment, but outsiders had best avoid the term entirely. Many Mainers consider it condescending and "cute."

When I was growing up in Mass, we had this family friend who was born and raised in Maine. We called him a Mainiac, which he encouraged. He was cool.

Mostly we are just called Mainers. Our National Guard pilots refer to themselves as Maineiacs.
