 Thinking Since this topic is about words and meanings I'm posting my question here.

I'm finding conflicting answers to these two questions. Thought an RDer would know.

Londoners are from London, Glaswegians are from Glasgow.

What is the term  for a native of Edinburgh?

What is the term  for a native of Dundee?

Thanx in advance.

From Dundee is Dundonian.  Edinburgh seems to be trickier - Edinburgher seems to be the most common, though I've also heard Edinburghensian and Dunediner (which is from the old name for Edinburgh).  English doesn't really do denonyms to the extent of some languages and there are whole cities without a specific term for their residents.
