The saying Paisley Buddy applies to every person who is from Paisley and is believed to be a corruption of the old Scottish term for bodies. It has been used for many centuries to describe the townsfolk of Paisley and its origins are now in the dim and distant past.

Other towns around Scotland have their local names if you are from Glasgow you are a Weegie and if your from Edinburgh you are called Edinbuggers and you will find more Scottish townsfolk have other names..

So if your from Paisley you are a Buddy..

Paisley Buddy and proud.
