What do you call people who originate from different parts of the United Kingdom?
It is common to give demonyms to people from different parts of the same country, as well as using them to describe people from different countries. This list of demonyms used in the UK is far from complete, so if you know of anymore, please do let us know.
Some of these demonyms may be considered as compliments, whereas others might cause offence if used in the wrong place / way. There is no intention to cause any offence by publishing them here.
