Or, in Britain, they're soft drinks.

...Which makes just about as much sense as either of those names

It's called a soft drink since as opposed to a hard drink they have no alcohol content ergo soft drinks makes total sense.

"Soft" refers to the fact that they lack alcohol, as opposed to "hard" as in Mike's Hard Lemonade, which as you may know contains alcohol.

It's soft drinks because they don't contain alcohol. You don't hear them called it often or anything, but alcoholic drinks are "hard" drinks.

I'm from Tennessee and I can vouch for this map. It's not that people called everything coke, it's that coke was just a term for soft drinks in general. The prominence of the use of this term in the south is most likely attributed to the largest Coca Cola bottling plant being in Atlanta, Georgia.

When I moved to Michigan 6 years ago I was extremely confused when someone asked me what kind of pop I wanted. They were more confused when I asked them what kind of cokes they had.

Yeah I can at least understand the others but just saying coke is just asking for confusion. I also find it funny when people say "it's not pop this isn't the 1950s" when in the fifties there were places called soda fountains/soda shops. That's usually the argument I use when people say I shouldn't say pop.

Technically, Sprite is produced by Coca-Cola, so it makes about as much sense as anything else.

We typically say coke if it's a coke product. If not, say it is Mountain-Dew, we say Mountain-Dew.

It doesn't work for Pepsi products like that. We just call them by name
