Midlands (England) ... reseved for the "middle" in the vertical (North/South) direction - but countries oriented more EW might use "Mid" with a horizontal meaning (ie between East and West). In the UK, Scotland and England both have midland areas famous enough for the capital M (ie "Midlands" as a name, not just a description.
