Kentucky has a town of Versailles which they pronounce Versales. I think they do it just to make the French cringe 😉

Western Pennsylvania has the same town and the same pronunciation. But I doubt it's aimed at the French. In Pittsburgh is the neighborhood of Duquesne, and it's rightly pronounced "doo-KAYNE." Or sort of rightly.
