In the United States, a Northerner is also known as a Yankee, or to some Southerners, a damnyankee. This confuses Europeans, who think of all United States citizens as Yankees.
North"ern*er (?), n.
One born or living in the north.
A native or inhabitant of the Northern States; -- contradistinguished from Southerner.
