Newfie (also Newf or sometimes Newfy) is a colloquial term used in Canada for someone who is from Newfoundland, most often as a slur to refer to someone foolish or proud from that place. The word was first recorded in a 1942 dictionary of slang. However, at this time Newfie only referred to Newfoundland itself; a Newfoundlander was a Newfier. During the Second World War, sailors on convoy duty nicknamed St. John's (the capital of Newfoundland) Newfiejohn.
