I think we can all agree that it’s Pear like the fruit. Now let’s move on to Humble, Tx. Every Yankee fan I know pronounces the H and it drives me nuts.

Another one is Burnet in the hill country. It's Burn-IT. I went to school with a guy that was from Burnet and anytime someone would say "Burr-net", he's say "It's Burn-it durn it, can't you learn it." That's how i learned how to pronounce it.

My dad grew up around Burnett and he said Burn-it. Now for Mexia, some locals I know say may-hair.

Love it when storms in Gulf etc. and northern and even many local folks whether living here or from other places in News Casts say Refugio. For those learning just put an R in place of the G so it is like fu with the U sounding like a U. At least this one can be tolerated and entertaining being mispronounced.

That’s an odd one fo sho. Never heard it pronounced that way. What’s the proper way to pronounce Tehuacana?

I'm always fascinated by how places get their names so I looked it up. Here's what Wikipedia says:

Pearland had its beginnings near a siding switch on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in 1882. When a post office was established in 1893, the community was named "Mark Belt". On September 24, 1894, the plat of "Pear-Land" was filed with the Brazoria County courthouse by Witold von Zychlinski, a man of Polish nobility.[6] At the time Pearland had many fruits harvested by residents. Zychlinski saw the pear trees and decided that "Pearland" would make a good name for the community.[7]
