Louisiana is known for our rich culture, food, and music, but we also have some very unique names in our state, like Calcasieu, pronounced by President Trump on a recent visit to Hackberry, as CAL-CASK-OO-CHOO.

We're also best known for using common words as alternate meanings. For instance, we use the word boot to describe were we come from, humidity is a season, fishing is a required skill, and F.E.M.A. is a very bad F-word you are not allowed to say.

Check out these names that can be hard to pronounce or spell for people unfamiliar with our ways.
