  1. A Utard is a person from Utah. It is a synonym of Utahn with perjorative overtones. Many believe there are only two kinds of people in Utah: Utahns and Utards. Most Utards wish to remain Utahnymous lest someone notice. 
  2. An incompletely formed object or person, falling slightly short of full fruition or recognition of the thing expected, stunted in development of growth or consciousness. Many people who move to Utah have done so with the hope to feel slightly superior. Encountering large numbers of Utards can be a morale booster.
  3. A person whose belief system is based purely on hope and faith with a significant lack of will, desire, or aptitude to add congnitive reasoning and intellecutal inquiry to the mix of personal epistomology.

  • "The utardique urn, fabricated in haste and with little regard for form or functionality, could hardly be called the epitome of Mrs. Page's 2nd grade pottery art experiment."
