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.”
