Forth Worth Discusses What to Call People Who Live in Fort Worth 0 287

About a week ago, Reddit users on the Fort Worth subreddit had a lively discussion about what the residents of our city should be called. We wanted to share the best nicknames that came out of this discussion with you today – we think you’ll like them!

The top commenter thought that we should call ourselves “Fort Worther’s originals” after Werther’s Original Candy. Although we love a good pun, we don’t think that we’ll be calling ourselves this anytime soon… it’s a bit of a mouthful!

One of our personal favorites was “Fort Worthies.” It’s short and sweet just like a nickname should be!

We also liked one commenter’s suggestion that we call ourselves “Fort Worthingtons.” It’s quite a distinguished sounding name, which we think fits the residents of Fort Worth perfectly.

One longtime Fort Worth resident thinks that a special moniker for Fort Worth residents is unneccessary. He says that “I’m from Fort Worth” is a sufficient enough response when someone asks where you’re from.

We think that this final comment settled the debate once and for all. According to Wikipedia, we’re “Fort Worthers.”

Fort Worth Residents Completely Reject Possible City Logo Change 0 943

Brian Bird is new to the Fort Worth City Council. He represents Southwest Fort Worth and recently made a recommendation to try and boost the national profile of the city in hopes of gaining interest from Fortune 500 companies seeking to relocate or build new operations. His suggestion? Remove the longhorn from the city’s logo.

It’s safe to say that right now Mr. Bird is not the most popular City Councilperson in Fort Worth. NBC DFW took a quick online poll which was spread around Facebook by Fort Worth residents and pages like “Fort Worth: Better Side of the Metroplex”. The response was resounding, 94% of those who voted rejected the idea of removing the longhorn in hopes of appeasing Fortune 500 companies and getting them to move their businesses here.

Fort Worth is home to the the headquarters for American Airlines and D.R. Horton from the Fortune 500 list and to several other companies such as XTO Energy, Cash America International, BNSF Railway, GM Financial, Galderma, Niagra Conservation Corporation, Pier 1 Imports – and we recently got a huge coup when Facebook built their newest data center here.
