Living in New Zealand quite a few of the towns are named in the native tongue ( moari ). The best one I always thought was Whakatane. It's pronounced fuck-a-tah-nay.

Here in Ohio we don't have too many funny-named cities, just some places that are pronounced wrong. We have Bellefontaine (pronounced bell-FOUN-tain) followed by Russia (prunounced ROO-shee) and Lima (pronounced LIE-ma.) Also we have a Versailles (ver-SALES.) At least we don't pronounce the city of my alma mater EIGHT-thins; we pronounce it like the city it was named after, as in the capital of Greece.

It's not a town, but how about the bridge over the "Lost and Old River" east of Baytown, TX. Sounds like it was named by Eeyore.

If anyone tries to tell you that Florida does not have mountains (besides the big bodacious mountains ) they are wrong. The mountains are in New Mexico, but they are the Florida mountains.

Apparently the town of Boring, Oregon, is twinned with the village of Dull, Scotland

A couple of weeks ago I went through Florida. I expected to see more snow after a recent blizzard hit the area.
But I guess it all melted off with the warmer temperatures. Of course I am referring to Florida, NewYork.
I can see two people talking in Syracuse, New York. " if we get any more snow I am moving to Florida. !"
"What? 75 miles south?!"

Utah does odd pronunciations as well.

Weber (a county, a State University, and a river plus its canyon) and Heber (also a city named after a river and its canyon) rhyme, However, they each are pronounced with the first "e" being long: Weeber, Heeber.

The town of Hooper is pronounced "Hupper".

The cities of American Fork and Spanish Fork do NOT rhyme. The latter is pronounced "Spanish Fark".

Then you get into the names out of LDS scripture and all bets are off...

Nothing odd about that. You can always tell an outsider to K-W by the way they pronounce Weber St. If they pronounce it as if it were spelled 'Webber', they're from somewhere else. If someone pronounces it with a long E, emphasis on the first syllable, they are probably a local.

Those who pronounce it 'VAY-bur' may be correct, from an hard core, word-nerd, historical accuracy standpoint, but folks just might look at them a bit funny.


There's also Boehmer St (BEE-mer), Noecker St (NECK-er), and Pequegnat St (PEG-a-not).





Not too far away are the towns of Ballinafad (emphasis on the first syllable, which rhymes with 'pal', and obliterate the third syllable -- BAL-in-fad), and Erin (pronounced 'EAR-in').




As far as funny-named towns go, here's one I've passed a few times in Quebec (yes, the exclamation points are part of the official spelling):
