What do you call a person from New South Wales?

    What do you call a resident of a certain state? Believe it or not, there are numerous nicknames to describe people who live in different states. While many are fairly obvious (after all, it isn’t hard to figure out that a “Georgian” is from Georgia), some aren’t as clear cut. For example, not everyone knows where a “Buckeye” or “Cornhusker” live (for reference, “Buckeyes” live in Ohio and “Cornhuskers” live in Nebraska).

    If you’re planning to move to a new state, we certainly recommend familiarizing yourself with the various resident nicknames – especially the ones that aren’t as obvious. For a closer look at what to call a resident from a certain state, read our full list of state resident nicknames below.

    More tips to help you prepare for an interstate move

    Knowing your new state resident nickname isn’t the only thing you’ll want to learn beforehand. When moving to a new state, here are 5 other important things to research and know before you go.

    • Research schools – Moving with school-age children? Prepare for the move by researching schools and educational opportunities in your new city. Once you’ve chosen a new school, be sure to send them your child’s transcripts, teacher notes and other requirements. For help finding top-rated schools in the new neighborhood, use Moving.com’s  School Ratings tool , which includes GreatSchools ratings and other helpful information. For tips on moving during the school year, check here .
    • Forward your mail – Be sure to schedule the date you wish to begin forwarding mail on USPS’s website. This is one of those details that is easy to forget, so make sure to do this a few weeks ahead of the move. For advice on forwarding your mail and changing your address, check here .
    • Find a place to live – For help finding a safe and affordable place to live in your new city, contact a reputable local Realtor who can show you the ins and outs of various neighborhoods. A well-seasoned real estate agent will guide you through the entire house hunting process from start to finish. They should also have a thorough understanding of the local market. To find a real estate agent in your new state, check Realtor.com’s network of  Realtors . For tips on how to find the right Realtor for the job, check here .
    • Create a budget for your move – Can you afford movers or do you prefer to move yourself? These are the kind of questions you’ll need to ask yourself prior to an interstate move. To help you figure out exactly how you’re going to move, create a budget several months in advance. When working on a moving budget, don’t forget to factor in the cost of boxes, supplies, moving help, storage, etc. For tips on budgeting for a move, check here .
    • Pay a visit to the new city and state –Before you move, we recommend making an in-person visit to your new home. Checking out neighborhoods, homes, local restaurants, public transportation and hot spots ahead of time will make a move less overwhelming. It will also help you to get acclimated faster.
