Seemingly everyone knows the names of popular cities such as Salt Lake City, Park City, or St. George. There are definitely some smaller places, however, that have names that are a bit unbelievable, reported ABC 4.
Here are five Utah town names you probably can't pronounce correctly:
Located on the Wasatch Front in Salt Lake City, this town is actually pronounced "o-quir."
This town name has a pronunciation that isn't anywhere close to what you'd think. Tooele is actually pronounces "too-wil-a."
This town name, pronounced "we-bur," is located in Northern Utah.
I know, it looks like "du-ches-ne." It's not. Duchesne is actually pronounced "du-shane."
This one is just too long to even try without guidance. To make it easier, the last "o" should sound like an "e." This is pronounced "timp-ah-no-ges." But, just do like all the other locals and call it "Timp."
