Let's make a list of the nicknames of the people who live in certain cities:

for example:

London: Londoners
Sydney: Sydneysiders
Melbourne: Melburnians
Chicago: Chicagoans
New York: New Yorkers
Paris: Parisians (Parisiens in French)

I can't think of others. There seems to be no official title for people who live in Perth, my city. (besides "losers". . . . jk :D)

Add some more!

Around Italy there are some that are really strange.

people of Messina (in Sicily) can be called as Messinesi but also...Peloritani (is a range of mountain in the back of the city)

People of Trieste can be called or Triestini or Giuliani (the Giulia is the small area where Trieste is settled)

Torino people or Torinesi or Sabaudi (from the old kings of Italy of the Savoia Family)

Napoli people or Napoletani or Partenopei (Partenope was the old latin name of the city)

People of Roma or Romani or Capitolini (cause Roma is the capital city - but this is really rare. it's more use to indicate things and not people)

the inhabitants of Vibo Valentia (in Calabria) are called...Vibonesi

people of Frosinone are called Ciociàri (Ciociarìa is the historical region)

Inhabitants of Como can be Comaschi, Comacini, Comensi!

people of Cuneo are Cuneese or Cuneense

...the crazy one is about people of Ivrea (in Piedmont): they are Eporediese!

people of the sicilian city of Caltanisetta are the Nisseno

The people of Città di Castello (close to Perugia) are ....Tifernate!

Stockholm - Stockholmare, Nollåttor. :p
Gothenburg - Göteborgare.
Malmö - Malmöbor or perhaps Malmöiter.

In most cities/towns in Sweden you just end the name with (bor).
