That makes sense, and I marked it as the answer.

comment Why is the “J” in San Jacinto pronounced like an English “J” instead of an “H” in Texas?
@heathenJesus, your answer makes the most sense of the many opinions I've heard. I can imagine a committee in early San Jacinto deciding that they were going to enforce the "proper" pronunciation of their town's name.

@Mark, you're right -- cut and paste is not my forte. (couldn't resist) The second link was meant to go to english.stackexchange.com/q/6508/18632.

english.stackexchange.com/q/1545/18632 is about how to pronounce an Italian word or French word in English. Not closed. english.stackexchange.com/q/1545/18632 is about how to pronounce an Arabic word in English. Not closed. @waiwai933, why is this different?

I've never heard it pronounced Hacinto in Texas. I'm going to update my question. I just listened to Peter Gabriel's song San Jacinto and he pronounces it Hacinto. Where do you live?
