Me too. Next time I'm in Minneapolis I don't want to see like a tourist and
pronounce it incorrectly.

FYI - We "renamed" our county because the original person was also a slave
owner. Fortunately we went from being named after William R. King to Martin
Luther King, Jr. So King County became King County. Much easier.
