How do you say it?

I’ve noticed that there are at least four different ways that folks living in New Orleans pronounce the name of the city:

• New Orleans (OR – lans)
• New Orleans (or –LEENS)
• New Orleans (or – LEE – ans)
• New Orleans (Nawlins)

How do you say it? Have you heard any other pronunciations? Let us know!
