One thing about the names in the PNW...You sure can tell the long-
timers from the newcomers...just listen to how they pronounce 
OREGON.  Easterners and newcomers do it in three syllables.  Old 
timers, at least in the eastern part of the state do it in two.  Then 
there's those who butcher BOISE, let alone YAKIMA and WALLULA.  I can 
remember a lot of snickers....very polite, of course.
