It's only southerners that refer to things as their brand name. It's our culture though.

Different areas may have different brands and words for things, but I haven't seen any more brand name usage oin the south than in the north. Besides, as every year goes by, the differences in cultures from region to region are slowly fading away. Personally, I think that's a sad thing.
