Growing up in Indiana it was "pop". Having moved around a dozen times across country I have heard it called everything mentioned here.
The strangest thing is my kids call it soda, or soft drink.
My oldest daughter, one day as she walked in the house and saw me said,"Hi Pop!"
That was weird, because to me that was what we called a soft drink and I never related it to a term for Dad.
I stay neutral and call them what they are "soft drinks".
If you add a "hard drink" to a "soft drink" you get a "mixed drink".
