    Wrexhamite is used a lot in the articles here, we always thought the description was Wrexhamian – pronounced to rhyme with Canadian. It sounds better because Wrexhamite has a suggestion of insects – like termites, or just mites. Anybody want to join in a small posting to suggest our editors reconsider their usage of the word?

    Noted!! I’ll consult with the editor / inventor of Wrexhamite and see where the discussion takes us. I’m sure there was some rationale for using it, and it has been used a lot :o

    The Wrexhamian was the name of the old Grove Park Grammar school magazine, and logic says they would have chosen a name that described them ie pupils/students/people of Wrexham. I may be wrong here, but people often call members of a local community by its name+ites when they aren’t actually a member of that community.
    another way is this: if you are a local or if you are describing the good people of wrexham say ‘wrexhamians’ and when you are describing an un-named bunch of local idiots or the particular locals concerned are behaving stupidly then call them ‘wrexhamites’.

    I think Wrexhamite sounds right but Wrexhamian sounds more like a breed of dog. Is it me ?

    @kkob – That’s funny because most Wrexham citizens are dogs…

    @angryshopper – “Dolites” works too!
