It seems every town or city in Illinois has a different name. It's the derogatory name that locals use and noobs will soon understand. Some are pretty dirty.

You're not from here, so you wouldn't understand

I don't think that saying could apply any greater way than it does to this list. I've never been to some of these places, so I can't say if I agree with them or not.

Some of these nicknames are pretty common and you've likely heard them (or even used them) before.

WARNING!

If you came here to look at this list and you're not looking by yourself, you should know that a few of these nicknames are not so kind, so you may want to laugh in private.

No need to put yourself in an uncomfortable position.

And remember, if we didn't hear about one that you know, please share.
