Oh, if we're on to schools, now, I'm an Old Wellensian (Wells) and
(since Rosie mentions it) my father is an Old Marlburian.

I recall a similar discussion about Cambridge colleges when I was there.
Those at Peterhouse were officially Petrians; those at St John's were
Johnians.  I was at Queens', where we were conventionally Queens(wo)men.
The temptation was to call those at Christ's Christians and those at
Trinity Trinitarians, which was true in the case of my particular
friends from those colleges, but probably not of the majority of
students!  Frequently in humour, but never to my knowledge seriously,
those from Corpus Christi were Corpuscles.
