11 Unique Texas Names And Places That People ALWAYS Pronounce Wrong

We native Texans might not have a problem pronouncing even the weirdest, most non-phonetic town names in our state, but that’s just because we’re used to them. Out-of-staters, on the other hand, might as well be looking at a foreign language when they try to say some of them. Although it can be pretty funny to witness, we figured we’d help them out a bit by (literally) spelling out some of the harder ones for them. There are definitely a lot more, but these 11 city and town names in Texas get mispronounced more than any others.

Have you ever heard anyone mispronounce any of these towns? What other places in Texas do people always pronounce wrong?
