He’s not from NWI, but said he’s familiar with this area due to his travels.

not bad, perhaps the coast or south coast which is a wider area?

agree, even though there's an area called South Shore in Chicago.

Indiana is indeed the geographical south shore of Lake Michigan

another city-data member suggested the name North Shore which is what we are to the rest of Indiana to avoid the confusion with Chicago's South Shore area. I like the sound of it.

North Shore is good, but there is already the Chicago North Shore suburban name for Winnetka, Kenilworth, Wilmette, Highland Park, etc.

true, forgot about that but I would say they have neither North or South Shore rights to them but I can see the possible confusion. I guess one would say Indiana's North or South Shore

What’s wrong with “Northwest Indiana” or NWI as it is now? I grew up here and rarely called the area “The Region.”

If there had to be a different name, South Shore would be my suggestion. We already have the South Shore Line, and we’re literally the south shore of Lake Michigan. There’s a community called South Shore in Chicago, but there’s also a neighborhood called South Chicago on the South Side, so there’s that.

NWI is the largest steel producing region in the US, so there could be a play on the industrial strength of the region. The Steelyards / Steelville ? Meh.

The Calumet river runs through NWI... How about Calumet Valley (or CalVal for short)? Or Calumet Shores? That sounds nice.

In all honesty, NWI is fine with me. It clearly lays out what part of Indiana we’re in and isn’t as generic as “The Region.”
