It said I was "Inland North" and I've lived in Virginia my entire life.
Virginia has its own very distinct accent actually depending on where you live. Many words with the Virginia accent are still very Englified. The most glaring example is the word 'aunt.' do you pronounce it like 'ant' or pronounce the vowels long.
The other thing with VA is the distinction in dialects across the state. Central VA and Tidewater outside of Hampton roads usually have the Englified thing going on. The mountains are different and sound much more Appalachian. The Northern part has no distinction to it. The Englified thing is very prominent in a few parts of the state such as South Central and a few areas of Tidewater. My dad is a beautiful thin to listen to because of the distinctness of the dialect, I have it to a much lesser extent since my mom doesn't have it being an Air Force brat.
