Default Re: how much say do you have in pronouncing your name or town?

Is there any state name that gets mispronounced as much as Oregon?

I think you're right.
But a lot of people say Nev-aah-da instead of Nevada. They say awe instead of ah. We are on the west coast, thus we don't use an east coast accent when pronouncing our state name.

ahh = awe? no
