Minnesota has some of the craziest names in the country, it's always hilarious seeing people try to pronounce them. Our sister station in Colorado tried just that, and failed.

I feel bad for anybody from out of state that moves here and has to learn how to pronounce our city names correctly. Personally, I still have to ask how to say a city's name once in a while, especially "Duelm" right here in central Minnesota.

Here's the cities they tried to say. Can you say them any better? I'd hope so!

  • Fairbault
  • Anoka
  • Duelm
  • Wayzata
  • Edina
  • Mahtomedi
  • Shakopee
  • Cloquet
  • Bemidji
  • Frazee

To return the favor, I figured we could try to say some Colorado city names and send it over to them. There may be some competition with which state actually has the hardest city names to pronounce!
