And in interesting, or not, differences in regional cultures... I think most people where I live would agree that Indian Jones wears a Stetson, or perhaps Cowboy Hat. Which is kinda funny considering Stetson is actually a brand of hats and not a style. But most certainly, it'd be very rare to find anyone calling it a fedora.


Well, he wore a fedora, it's not an issue of opinion. Also, you need to recognize that (your wording isn't clear on this) that Indiana Jones is well known for wearing a fedora, he's even cited under the wikipedia article on fedoras. Again, I think you're saying that it's jsut where you live.

But really, there are more styles of hats and other headgear to be forgotten about then most of us will ever remember: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hats

Now it might be worth noting that in the original script Indiana Jones:
Raiders of the Lost Ark screenplay wrote:
wears a short leather jacket, a flapped holster, and a brimmed felt hat with a weird feather stuck in the band.


But by the third movie, they purposefully introduced a MAN IN A FEDORA in order to make you think he was Indy. More on point, it's called a fedora in the script:
Last Crusade screenplay wrote:

BACK TO INDY

Holding the Grail Diary, reading once again, his fedora now
covered in cobwebs.

INDY
"The second challenge is the Word of
God. Only in the footsteps of God
will he proceed."
(to himself)
The Word of God... The Word of...

Also, While lists of hat names may seem daunting, I'd posit that the list of what we put on our feet (most of those items have sub-lists) is even larger and more cumbersome: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Footwear
