I've never heard that term and I grew up in Minnesota. Could be a regional thing.

Common UK usage would be "hoover", & so this answer should be accepted in my view. I can't imagine anyone saying "vacuum" or "vacuum cleaner", & while "hoover" is a generic, "Dyson" specifically would mean an appliance of that brand.
