Names for Pentax Users Worldwide

As a new Pentax Forum member, I was interested to see how members called themselves various names, the most common being "Pentaxian". Here is a humorous look at possible names for Pentax members from various countries around the globe:

Possible Pentax User Nicknames Worldwide
USA – Pentaxian
Canada – Pentaxian, eh?
Mexico – los Pentaxcionista
Scotland – MacPentaxish
France – le Pentaxeau
Japan – Pentakawa
Germany – Herr/Frau Pentaxdorf
China – Pentaxiang
India – Pentaxakar
England – Pentaxson
Italy – Pentaxioli
Spain – Sr./Sra. Pentaxenza
Brazil – Pentachez
Ireland – O’Pentaxahan
Russia – Pentanoff
Sweden – Pentaffson
Kuwait – Pentaxajjar
Greek – Pentaxelopoulos
Korea – Pentakwan
Poland – Pentoski
Vietnam – Pentaxiang

(due to popular demand and the rules of grammar, the apostrophes and plural form have been banished)

Do you have any other suggestions?
wheelerp from Saskatchewn, Canada, eh?

Scandiwegians - Pentavikings?

(Actually, in Norway it's usually "pentaxianer".)

But what's up with all the apostrophes?

Apparently singular possessive is the only way to refer to a Pentax fan?

I suspect that this might not be so funny to those whose langauges, or names, are being stereotyped.

Australians shorten proper nouns and add a vowel- not lengthen them so 'Penno' would seem more natural.
