Michigan's centuries-old diverse history has helped us acquire some pretty tough-to-pronounce names to our cities and towns. Even those who have lived here all their lives either mispronounce, or have no clue how to verbalize many Michigan locations.

The list below has 40 such places, some you know, some are no-brainers, some you may have never heard of before...but at least you'll have a better grasp on how to articulate these names.

Here we go.....

Now, send this list to people you know out-of-state. Have them video themselves as they attempt these names (before looking at the pronunciations) and send it to ya!
