<1>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation. While it might not be exactly right, it should be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Syracuse refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a village's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Syracuse may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
