Flipper

Does anyone call the device used to change TV channels a "flipper"? My siblings and I have always called it that and I'm curious to know if this is a regional thing we've picked up or just a nonsense word. I haven't met anyone else who calls it that yet, though.

(As for me: 5 years in western Florida, 9 years in and near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and 6 years in southern New Jersey.)
