Michigan residents are Michiganders, or less correctly, Michiganians (fight me). A citizen of Detroit is a Detroiter. So what is a resident of Battle Creek?

Battle Creek Memes, the popular Facebook page, put the question to the people recently. They suggested the following:

  • Battle Creekians
  • Battle Creeksters
  • Battle Creatures

There were some other suggestions that came up in the thread's discussion

  • Battle Creekans
  • Battle Creekers
  • Battle Creeps
  • Battle Cretins

Finally, there was a suggestion for Battle Crickers, which brings back new life to the question as to whether the city is pronounced Battle Creek or Battle Crick. This distinction seems to come down to age.
