La Jolla, California

That's exactly what I thought of!

When I was a Bostonian, talking to my friend living in La Jolla, I did say "La Joe-La" until he corrected me.
California affords a lot of these thanks to Spanish / Mexican names.
"San Joe's", "San Jus-into" (in California it is indeed Hasintow), "Ox-aka" (Ouahaka), "Ba-jaw California", ...
OTOH the super-Mexicans say "Los An-heles".
Since I don't know Spanish here is what I've gathered:
English and SPanish -
J = H
X = H ("Viva la Mexico", Oaxaca)
G = H or GH (Los Anheles, Ar'hentina)

My friend Havier just bought a Ha'huar.
