  1. The Native names here make for a good giggle for newcomers...names like Lilliwuap, Nooksak and Walla Walla can be just plain fun to say! Then there are places whose names don't pronounce the way they spell; Sequim is SQUIM, Kalaloch is CLAY-lock and we have a Des Moines here but most of the asshat locals insist on pronouncing it duh-MOINZ. (They say "it's NOT the same as the city in Iowa, WE pronounce the "S", but they can't tell me why, then, they don't call it dess-MOINZ, if they really DO pronounce the S.)

     

    But my favorite Washington place name is HUMPTULIPS!
