  I live near the Llano (ya-noh in english) River.  I know how to 
pronounce it but I come from the TX - Mexico border and because of that 
know some Spanish.  Most folks around here don't how to pronounce Llano 
in Spanish, so they pronounce it in English.  It's not contempt, it's 
ignorance.  Not only that, the names were in Spanish because they saw 
'em first!

  Consider how you'd pronounce Salido Cr.  Or Rio Rojo in English.  HUH?

   These were named by the first guys on the scene!


; how would you prono
