Bonn-EE-ville.

Bonnie - Like the name. You dont say "Hey there, BonnAH". You say "Hi BonnIE".

Same thing with Bonn-EE-ville. There'* no 'eh' in the middle, its 'ie'. So pronounce it!!!

Huh, you know I never really thought about it.....
I say it Bon-uh-ville, but the "uh" is somewhat silent.
Am I the only one that had to say it out loud to myself?

It actually depends on who I talk to,

I usually say Bonnie-ville if I'm talking to old or older people

I usually say Bonna-ville when speaking to peers.

I think the country folk tend to call it Bonna, and northerners tend to say Bonnie, well; Where I live anyway.
