And Now You Know.. the rest of the story...

Recommended Posts

The 'owner' of a name is the authority on its pronunciation. For instance here in GA we have a county, no doubt named after the Great Rev War guy, DeKalb. We pronounce it dee-CAB county. People from up North (Illinois and Indiana) correct us and say it is pronounced 'dee-CAWLB' county. When in Indiana etc.., but here etc. We also have another county "Taliaferro" You would never guess - TOLLiver (rhymes with DOLL-iver)
