Greetings Moliken, I have discovered a few reputable Internet sources and a U.S. government site that answers your query. Wyoming - Wyomingite Massachusetts - Bay Stater Connecticut - Connecticuter; Nutmegger http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0855542.html Wyoming - Wyomingite Massachusetts - Bay Stater Connecticut - Connecticuter http://www.hyperdic.net/dic/american.htm Wyoming - Wyomingite Massachusetts - Massachusettsan, Bay Stater Connecticut - Connecticuter; Nutmegger http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1450700 And the United States government lists the following in their style manual: Wyoming - Wyomingite Massachusetts - Massachusettsan Connecticut - Connecticuter http://www.gpoaccess.gov/stylemanual/2000/chapter_txt-5.html I would take the latter as the definitive source. :) Thanks for asking this very interesting question!
