- Used to form the names of residents or inhabitants of particular places, in particular towns/cities.
-bo will work in almost all cases; -are is more common for certain towns/cities. But also in those cases, -bo should be considered valid. Note that in some cases, typically when the name of the location is a compound word, an extra -s- is inserted before -bo. E.g. Stockholmsbo.
-it is even less common, denotes a person with very strong bonds towards the town/city in question; someone who lived there all of his/her life, possibly even with ancestors who lived there too. Only a few towns/cities actually gives rise to commonly used -it-forms, notably Malmö ("Malmöit").
