Mensagem:  Your helpful insight makes me wonder whether we can call residents of S. F. de Assis do Piauí simply "piauienses de S. F. de Assis do Piauí".

We will call a Fresno CA resident a "Fresnoian." We will call one living in Cedar Rapids IA a "Cedar Rapidian"?

What to call residents of Lake Havasu AK, "Lake Havasuians," "Lake Havasuers"? Would those living in Twentynine Palms CA gladly accept "Twentynine Palmers" for a demonym? No, why not?
