Fun Friday: What Do You Call It?

That carbonated beverage that comes from a can--what generic name do you call it by? It varies by region. I grew up in northern Indiana calling it "pop." I move to Jacksonville, FL and it was all "cokes." It was frustrating to ask for a Coke and have someone say, "What kind of coke?" Now I call it "soda." What do you call it?

Below is a pretty detailed map to show how it varies by regions of the United States. And if you don't live in the United States, what do you call it and does it change regionally in your country?
