Actually, Greecians are now known as Grecian 2000s, to celebrate their proud historical legacy. Not a lot of people know that.

Well, you lot are no fun at all.

I think it’s Saudi(s) for that lot. Or Saud(s) if you’re talking about one of the billions of princes. Presumably because the i in Arabic denotes ownership, or something.

Cote d’Ivoire >>> Ivoirian

Mauritius >>> Mauritiusian

Seychelles >>> Seychellian?

The i (or maybe it’s more like a y) in Arabic denotes nationality like in:

British: Britani/y

French: Frensi/y

American: Americani/y

Saudi Arabia: Saudi/y

Greek: Yonani/y

The royal Saudi dynasty individuals are called “Aal Saud”.

Ah yes, that makes sense. I should have remembered from the nom de guerre that ■■■■ fighters take (the al-Britani lot in particular!). But let’s not get into that!
