What are We Called?

What do you you call someone who lives in Des Moines? No, seriously, this isn't a spectacularly bad joke set-up. Are we:

  • "Des Moinesians"
  • "Des Moans" (rhymes with Samoans)
  • "Des Moiners"
  • "Des Moinistas"
  • "Des Moinae"

Any ideas I'm missing?



I've always thought Des Moinesians fit us.

I like Des Moiner. Or Des Moinite. Either way, don't care what they call us, as long as I can call Des Moines home!
