I grew up using "soda" as the generic term. My parents, both from Illinois, met & married in California when my dad was in the Navy. So there's a small connection between to the two Soda places.

I know that St. Louis has a more East Coast city feel than most Midwest cities. The hinterlands in MO and IL associated with St. Louis seem to reflect this as well. It would be interesting to know the history of why different names took root in different places.

I spent my first nine years in NE Oklahoma and then the rest of my childhood in the Kansas City metro. It was always "pop." I lived in Philly for a couple of years in my late twenties and started saying "soda." It has stayed soda ever since.
