3: G*d Damn Yankee. This is a person from the North that moved to the South permanently, and he brought his family.

I personally can't remember me and my family being called a Yankees whenever we traveled in the South but we did get some curious glances (the kind where they know we're not from their neck of the woods). They pretty much knew we were from the North most likely from the way we carried ourselves and the way we talked.

This is true. To northerners, the "southern qualities" of Maryland probably stand out, and people think "gee, this place seems a bit southern." To southerners, the "northern qualities" of Maryland probably stand out and people think, "gee, this place seems a bit northern."
