    My Spanish friend told me that people from Olula are officially called Olulense, but they are locally known as “Onion Heads” by other close by villages!

    Living in Lanzarote, I think I prefer to be known as a conejero, rather than a cabron ( dumbass )!

    PS. I seem to have fallen off your mailing list so I’ll add myself back on

    Para referirnos a los habitantes de cierta región o país usamos el “gentilicio” (es un adjetivo). es decir, una persona nacida en Andalucía es andaluz/a, we don,t use capitals for “gentilicios”.
