An endonym is a name that people give to the area where they live. For example, you might live in a city that is officially named "Washington Heights," but you and all of your neighbors call it "The Heights." This is an endonym.
The Endonym Project is an effort to collect as many endonyms as possible and showcase the data in interesting ways.

We can't automatically determine your location, but you are welcome to manually move and zoom the map to add your endonyms.
Thanks for participating!
You can continue sharing your endonyms for other locations that you've lived by manually moving and zooming the map, or you can view the map of all of the endonyms that people have shared.
