Staunton, those of you not from VA would probably try and pronounce the "U" as you hear the words in your head... and you'd be wrong. Pronounced as "STANton." One of the many odd things I ponder while driving the 81 corridor.

Hush. It's that way so that Yankees will pronounce it wrong, thus making them stick out like a sore thumb so they can be ostracized. If you tell them, it won't work no more.
