Not the Golden Girls unless you are referring to Blanche who was Southern. There is an actress by the name of Dixie Carter who was in another show Designing Women .

Yep! Thanks, LC.

Ya know...in the back of my mind I said..."I bet she has some" but thought I would mention it anyway....

Take the test again...everytime you can answer "I don't know" do it...In other words act dumb! It'll probably ask if you're related to "The General"

61% Dixie. Well, duh.

even though I grew up (i.e., came up) around Chicago, I got enough family from southern states to claim that status. All the old folks fought for the Confederacy, and I even have a great-grandfather whose name was Jefferson Davis (last name).

And I had to good sense to marry a good ole boy from Tennessee.

Okay, I grew up in Upstate NY, spend 4 yrs in wester NY for college, 3 yrs in NC for grad school and have live for the last 19+ years in Maryland and I got a 53% Dixie. It was a fun quiz, but I know that depending where you grew up in NY or even in new england, some of the answers would be different.

It said I'm "49% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category."

Most of my answers were common to the whole U.S., sometimes "also southeast," "also mid-west," etc., so it really seems to lean toward the "also" areas. Although I was raised in California, I think a lot of the things I say lean more toward the midwestern way of speaking (like "pop" for carbonated drinks). Of course my mom and dad were both born in the midwest, although my mom moved with her family to California when she was seven.
