Default How do you pronouce Bonneville?

I did a search to see if this topic came up before and all I got was a message saying no topics match so I decided to ask. I've heard people pronouce it bonNEville and bonNAville, I called it by the second one. [/i]

BTW, I notice older people have called it bonneville and younger people call it bonnaville

bonNAville I haven't really heard any one really say bonneville but me and my family. None of my friends knew what a bonneville was until I started talking about mine.(most of the think domestic cars suck )

Bonnaville here. All my friends say BonNEville just to get on my nerves, though.
