What do YOU say? How do you pronounce Dacono?

Next asked the city manager - what do you say?

Time for another round of “What do YOU say?”

Playing today is a city that starts with a D, about 20 minutes north of Thornton on I-25. It’s home to the Colorado National Speedway and just south of Frederick.

Next asked the city manager how he says Dacono.

It’s a combination of three ladies names – Daisy, Cora and Nora – so technically you would pronounce the town the same way you would pronounce the first part of those names.

But a lot of people say it with an “A” sound at the end instead of an “O.” You can tell how long someone’s lived there by how they pronounce the name.

If you want to see any of our previous contestants on “What do YOU say?” we have all them gathered here.

This is how you pronounce confusing names of towns and streets in Colorado
