Seemingly everyone knows the names of popular cities like Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. There are definitely some smaller places, however, that have names that are a bit unbelievable, according to KXAN.
Here are five Texas town names you probably can't pronounce correctly:
While this town name looks like it would be pronounced "born", locals actually say "BURN-ee."
Though it looks lie "Bur-nett," it's actually pronounced "BURN-it."
It is pronounced "del VALL-ee."
This one looks pretty straight-forward, but people get confused on how to pronounce the "g." It's pronounced "EL-ghin," not "gin," like the drink.
