I am pretty sure that at least everyone in my city does prounce the word ora-ggin. I wonder if I use the proper pronunciations for other cities and states. Hmmmmmmmm...

Oregon's never been a troublesome name for me, but I find a lot of people confused about how to say Nevada.

Sounds like the ongoing discussion on how to pronounce "Baltimore" here on the East Coast. :-)

Have you seen the bumper stickers that say orygun?
The Oregonians I've known say "OR iggin" quickly, with no pause between first and second syllables. It starts like the word orifice. Actually, if you say "ore again" you've said it.

How are we supposed to prounce it? I always say...well now that I'm thinking about it, I can't make it sound right. OR-ih-gon?
As if everyone from the East Coast and Midwest don't pronounce this wrong too!---An Oregonian to the bone
