I understand the locals normally say N’orlins – Stress on the Nor.
I was just curious if there was an original French way in which Orleans may have been pronounced. Currently I say New Orlins – stress on the Or, but when I was young I would say New Orleens – stress on the leens.
Only Hollywood and tourists call the city N”Awlins.
The original name of the city was in French: Nouvelle Orleans. It is pronounced new vell ore lay on.
There are two "normal” pronunciations today:
New Or le ans (Orleans is 3 syllables)
New Or leans (Orleans is 2 syllables)
The issue is somewhat confused by the fact the City of New Orleans is also (same boundaries) Orleans Parish (parish = county). Everyone says Or leans Parish (Orleans with 2 syllables).
Reporter Tim Estiloz visited New Orleans in this 1997 story about a group of homeless youth – dubbed by some in the city as “Gutterpunks”. Estiloz spent several days with this group of disaffected and indigent young people – many of whom willingly chose to live on the hard – sometimes dangerous, streets of “Pre-Katrina” New Orleans.
Most of these kids lived “day to day” begging for food and money. Some lived in deplorable conditions near the popular French Quarter… unimaginable in the years before Katrina. Estiloz gained the trust of many of these kids… who allowed Estiloz to follow them, interview them and show their difficult life on the streets – an existence that some city administrators and business people in New Orleans frown upon. This is a uniquely candid and sad window into a homeless youth underclass in New Orleans that existed well before Katrina… and also still exists today.
This story was written and produced by Tim Estiloz – who now reports on entertainment for CN8 – The Comcast Network.

Pre-Katrina, pre-2000s New Orleans culture comes to life in this parody of the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas.” Sadly, practically everything in this video is gone or changed drastically. Most of the businesses, if I’m not mistaken, had disappeared or were sold before my family even moved out of Louisiana in 2000.
Sorry for the mediocre audio/video quality, but the tape is well past its prime as its last recorded program—this sketch—was recorded no later than December 1995 or ’96.
The only thing missing from this is the few opening words—”On the first day of Christmas, my mawmaw gave to me a crawfish they caught…”—but I think the video makes up for it with a nice little surprise at the end.
