What are the origins and history of the ethnonym Geordie in North East England? How does this history — which according to some authorities has never adequately been explained — help us to understand its current usage and meanings? I attempt to answer these questions by drawing on evidence from a range of sources (including newly available material in the British Newspaper Archive).
