In my area, if it has fizz, it's a "Coke". This covers all soda. Where I grew up it was known as "pop".
There was a youtube video a while back about the weird "normal" in New Mexico and one was "You want a coke?" "Yeah, what have you got?" "I have Big Red, Dr. Pepper and 7-UP". My ex grew up in Virginia and they did the same thing but used the word pepsi. :D

As a kid visiting family in TN, I remember the same thing. I heard this exchange between my cousin and a store clerk:

Q: "What kind of Coke do you want?"

A: "Give me an RC."
