Fun Friday: What's It Called?

That carbonated beverage that comes from a can--what generic name do you call it by? It varies by region. I grew up in northern Indiana calling it "pop." I move to Jacksonville, FL and it was all "cokes." It was frustrating to ask for a Coke and have someone say, "What kind of coke?" Now I call it "soda." What do you call it?

Below are two different maps to show how it varies by regions of the United States. And if you don't live in the United States, what do you call it and does it change regionally in your country?

Do you agree with the above map? It show Jacksonville as calling it soda and that wasn't what I found to be true, and it has our part of FL calling it Coke.

The bottom map is much more detailed, although I don't know how accurate it is. What do you think?
