Folks from Ponte Alto sometimes call themselves Fine Products but are 
more correctly called Pontoons.

Folks from Isenfir are called Isenfiri (usually plural) and sometimes 
Isenfarer (singular). I have known people to say "he is isenfiri" and 
"they are isenfiri"; but they tend to stumble over saying "he is an 
isenfiri". I'm not really sure what half-understood rules are at play there.
