Leanderite (inhabitant of Leander)

"Leanderite” is the name of an inhabitant of Leander, Texas. The name “Leanderite” has been cited in print since at least 2003.

The slang name of “Leanderthal” (Leander + neanderthal) has been in use since about 1998-99.


Wikipedia: Leander, Texas
Leander ( /liˈændər/ lee-an-dər) is a city in Williamson and Travis counties in the U.S. state of Texas. The population was 7,596 at the 2000 census. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated the 2008 population at 25,424. The city was established in 1882 on the railroad to Austin and was named in honor of Leander “Catfish” Brown, a railroad official.

It was near Leander that the Leanderthal Lady, a skeleton dating back 10,000 to 13,000 years, was discovered; the site was one of the earliest intact burials found in the United States.

Re: Longview vs. Leander
Hey! I got an idea: Each Leanderite bring 5 cutouts to stage around you so it looks better for crowd pictures.

Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
(...)
Me Talk Pretty was Mia’s book choice and, although I only read about half of it, I enjoyed it and do intend to finish.  (I’m still on this Henry the VIII train and I just can’t get off).  We Leanderites loaded up in one car and headed southy to Mia’s, where she had the most delicious meal prepared.
