How can someone from Cyprus be "Ellinas"?

A person from Greece is an Ellinas. A person from Cypus is a Kypreos.

It doesn't matter what language he speaks, he is still a Cypriot.

In reply to Simonskyman, Ελλαδίτης (elladitis) is someone who has a citizenship from the Greek state.

Ellinas is a Greek who can be from Greece or America (Greek-American), Cyprus (Greek-Cypriot/Ellino-kyprios) Albanian (Greek-Albanian/Ellino-Alvanos)....

How can someone be a Greek National if they are from Cyprus ,Bulgaria etc ?

If you are from Cyprus you are Kypraios,Albania=albanos,England=englezos etc. Correct me if I am wrong.

As for Elladides, how do spell/pronounce that in Greek ?

ΕΛΛΗΝΑΣ (Ellinas) is the correct word for a Greek National whether he is from Greece, Cyprus, Albania, etc.

Elladides is the correct word for someone who is a citizen of Greece.

Ellinas (as you wrote it) is the correct word to use for someone from Greece - not for someone from Cyprus.
