Awesome. Nothing says you’ve done a good job putting a message together like mispronouncing the most important word in it. I made it to the second Hecketa and couldn’t take any more.

At least they didn’t call it Cape Per-puh-too-uhhh.

My family has long called Perpetua that as a long running home. Like Vennetta and Willuhmetty.

At least we’re not doing this in a video!

Thank you for posting that link. It gives me a greater appreciation for that structure and how it affects everything. The satellite shots I look at for tuna fishing and how the ocean currents move off of Newport make a bit more sense now too.

I actually think they are pronouncing it right. I have been corrected by a local before when saying he-sea-ta.

In Eugene we have Barger Boulevard. Everyone pronounces it barge-er, like the boat that gets pushed by a tug. It’s named after a fella named Barger, but it’s a hard G, like gull. Bar-ger.

I suppose I wouldn’t be too surprised if we’ve all been saying it wrong. Weird how you just “know” it’s right when it’s been that way for generations.

How I pronounced Puerto Rico in grade school. (pure-toe rice-soe).
Till corrected by my 6th grade teacher.
I kept saying it to him, and he kept saying "WHAT?"
Till he finally caught on and corrected me.
Moi?
Funny how the one scientist in the video pronounced the discovering captains name as Heh- seat-AH, and later called it Hek-et-a. WTH?
And all the great minds throughout the video pronounced it HECK- EE-TAH.
OSU, Woods Hole, and Scripps.
But wada WE know.
We're just poor dumb uneducated fisher folk.
Now get offa here and hit the water.
Show those scientists how to catch fish.

Well after watching the video, they actually say it was named after a dude name Hezeta pronounced "He-sea-ta" . But commercial fisherman and scientists call it Hecketa. So there you have it. Guess both are right?


I guess kind of like how us valley folks say "Cape Blahn-co" but most locals I've heard say "Cape Blank-O"

Jon, the whole world is Hocus Pocus to me, I barely understand enough to get by day-to-day. Except now I have a better understanding of why we often have a cold water bubble off of the central coast.

No... they are pronouncing it incorrectly. It is pronounced "Ha-SEE-ta."

If you don't believe me, phone down to the Heceta Lighthouse and they will be happy to enlighten you. The good doctor is probably so used to the Latin Hecate, that he never gave it a second thought. Typical of many who live insular existences...

Disclaimer - I am not a linguist.

I think as with most words it depends upon the origin of it. I always smile because I have some people in my family who pronounce the word "Taco" with a spanish accent. Truly the word is of Spanish or Mexican origin and not English.

My only disclaimer to them is that I am speaking to them in English. How is it required that I need to switch to Spanish pronunciation the moment I speak one word of Spanish!

My mother was from England and she always said "Po-ta-to" and my father said "PO-TAE-TOE". Same with To-ma-to and TOE-MAE-TOE.

So the guys name is Bruno Heceta. He is from Spain. So if you want to give a nod to his ancestry, then you ought to pronounce it in his Spanish tongue. If you are speaking in English and don't have knowledge of Spanish accent, then you would say "Heck - E - TA". As that is the English pronunciation.

Now after that little post, you can see I definitely need to find my way to the "O-SEA-N" to find some FEEESSHHHH!

Don't matter how you pronounce it, it was a very informative video.
