I like it when people recognize the names of large developments (instead of just saying "I live in Loudoun County.") They're basically serving the function of cities here, we should call them by name.
I make a point of it because we are plunked out here between Ashburn and South Riding, but not part of either (although Ashburn is our main 'city' for zip code purposes - Brambleton and Broadlands are accepted alternate names). When Brambleton is completely built out (and it won't be for a long, long time), it will be the largest residential development in Loudoun, with almost 9000 homes.

My answer for, "Where do you live?" is highly context-dependent. If the asker isn't local, the answer is "Northern Virginia." If they are local, I'll get more specific, but even so I have friends that live in DC that have been to my house many times but still aren't really sure where I live except that they have to pay tolls to get here. But they love using my driveway as "Dulles offsite parking" for long trips!
