What do you call people from wherever it is

A demonym , also referred to as a gentilic, is a name for a resident of a locality. A demonym is usually – though not always – derived from the name of the locality; thus, in English, the demonym for the people of Italy is Italian, though the one used for the people of the Netherlands is Dutch

The word demonym comes from the Greek word for "populace" (demos) with the suffix for "name" (-nym).
