Was certain that the irregular demonym was Tennessee (Volunteer). I have never heard of a Tennessean in my life, but it does appear to be the official demonym.

Despite the GPO's recommendation, there are a number of demonyms for people from Connecticut: Connecticuter, Connecticotian, Connecticutensian, Nutmeg, and Nutmegger. (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_demonyms_for_U.S._states_and_territories) Having lived there many years, I'm pretty sure that "Nutmegger" is the most commonly used one--and that's totally irregular.

I guess you mean "Has water which can flow into the Atlantic, Pacific, OR Hudson Bay". Otherwise it must be pretty amazing water.

It seems as though the GPO has a pretty arbitrary method of deciding the official demonym for a state. The answer in this quiz was not considered official until last year, despite the fact that it was certainly the preferred name for quite some time beforehand. I would wager, too, that if you took a poll of "Oklahomans", they would much rather be called Sooners or Okies.

Even though it's been several years since I've lived there, I guarantee you your assumption about Oklahomans incorrect. The major newspaper is called "The Oklahoman". Ask anyone who has any affinity for the school in Stillwater and they'd rather be called a dbag than a Sooner. And I seriously doubt that more people would rather be called a term with as negative of a national connotation as "Okie". When Merle wrote the song it was totally a middle finger to the rest of the world.

Fair enough. It was a wager, not a guarantee. My main point was that it took them until 2016 to change the one that appears in the quiz.

Massachusetts Demonyn is Bay Stater officially, but they also list Massachusite and Massachusettsian which are both mouthfuls and I've never heard them used. Most people just call us Massholes.

Massholes is probably my favorite demonym.

If you're going to correct someone, y'all better make sure your post doesn't contain any misspellings.
