Description:
Texan normally refers to someone who originated from, or who lives in, the state of Texas in the United States of America.

History of the Term

The term is derived for the name of the state, Texas, which is in turn derived from the Spanish name for the once-Spanish province, Tejas. The Spanish took this name from a Caddoan word meaning "friends". Before the Texas War of Independence, Texas residents not of Hispanic descent were sometimes known as Texicans. During this time, and until annexation by the United States, nonhispanic Texas residents were also called Texians.
