This is mainly meant for our friends and family from outside of the Louisville area. You more than likely think the proper way to pronounce it is “Louie-ville” or “Louis-ville.” Those are sure-fire ways to make sure everyone knows you are from out of town. You might as well put a camera around your neck and walk slowly down sidewalks, because everyone will know you are out from out of town.
Here are three easy steps:
- Think of it as “Lou-a-vul,” then
- Pretend you have a mouthful of marbles, and then
- Try to pronounce it all as one syllable.
