The Local Pronunciation of Louisville
A sign on the front of the Louisville Visitors Center mocks the different ways that people pronounce the name of our city: “Lewisville,” “Looeyville,” “Looavull,” “Looaville,” and “Luhvull.” Phonetically, it would seem that the “Lewisville” or “Looeyville” pronunciations would be correct. However, pronouncing the name of your new home either of those ways is sure to give you away as an outsider. The pronunciation that most Louisville residents use is “Looavull,” though “Looaville” and “Luhvull” aren’t uncommon.
