Planite

noun; blending and clipping
Someone from Plano. Since there are many students at Rice that from various parts of Texas, there was a need to distinguish students from different cities. Houstonian is already a well established word meaning “a person from Houston”. However, there are no words designating a person from Dallas, Galveston, San Antonio, Austin, or any of the other major cities in Texas. Therefore, Planite is the first of many new words to appear.
 
Since you’re from Plano, that makes you a Planite. But if you’re from Richardson, it’s kind of hard to say Richardsonian.
Etymology : From clipping/blend Plan(o) + -ite ‘as, like, of, N/ADJ forming’
