#FURRYFRIDAY - PECAN VS PECAN


Meet Pecan

During our rescue photo session we met this adorable little guy, Pecan.  After admiring his sweet fluffy ears and giving a few belly rubs, we began to debate the correct pronunciation of his name.

Is it PEE-can or puh-KAN?

Growing up in California and raised by parents from the Midwest, I pronounce it puh-KAN and assumed the pronunciation is based on whether you live above or below the Mason-Dixon line.  However, doing a little research I found a poll conducted by the National Pecan Shellers Association that asked Americans how they say it.  45 percent of Southerners say “PEE-can,” while nearly 70 percent of those living in the Northeast do, too.  

What?

I do know no matter how you say it, Pecan is a sweet as his name.
