regional nomenclature question

Okay, we know that we have Northern Virginia from the DC 'burbs south to
somewhere; then over towards Norfolk is the Tidewater region, then as you
get closer to Richmond it becomes "South Side" which extends at least as
far as Lynchburg and Danville. Bristol is of course Southwestern Virginia,
so what is the Roanoke region best called ? Southern Virginia? Central
Virginia? What?

I know that you get 70 miles or so west of Roanoke to the Radford area, and
you go a bit north from there and get to the New River Valley, so what is
that in between region commonly referred to?

Just curious.
