In other words, it's how the residents of Saginaw refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Saginaw may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Saginaw or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
