Please give us some context or the country you are talking about.

Because as in Wikipedia, it depends on the country: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainlander

Greek. And, well, a direct opposite of islander. Like a man dwelling in the mainland of Greece, like Thessaloniki, a mainlander :)

Well, this is not exactly the case for Thessaloniki.:-)

In Greece, we have:

νησιώτης (male), νησιώτισσα (female) (islander)
θαλασσινός (male), θαλασσινή (female) (for anybody living by the sea, including islanders)
στεριανός (male), στεριανή (female) (living in the mainland)
ορεσίβιος (male), ορεσίβια (female) (for people living at mountainous places)

So, people in Thessaloniki belong to the second category.:-)

How about "Mainlander" as a name though? A male name that is.
