    London (London) + ‎-bo → ‎Londonbo (Londoner)

Usage notes[edit]

-bo will work in almost all cases; -are is more common for certain towns/cities. But also in those cases, -bo should be considered valid. Note that in some cases, typically when the name of the location is a compound word, the interfix -s- is inserted before -bo, e.g. Stockholmsbo.

-it is even less common, denoting a person with very strong bonds towards the town or city in question; someone who lived there all of his/her life, possibly even with ancestors who lived there too. Only a few towns/cities give rise to commonly used -it-forms, notably Malmö (Malmöit).
