How do y’all pronounce the name of the city?
As a not-very-well-traveled native of Burbank, I’ve always pronounced it "NEW-or-leans."
And when I’m trying to be cute, I pronounce it "NOIR-lins."
But when I’ve visited the area, several times in the last few months, I’ve noticed the folks down there pronounce it like this: "new-OR-lee-ins."
I love the latter two pronunciations and may just switch to one of those.
