06/24/2015 12:46 pm ET | Updated Jun 24, 2015

Certain places are famous for having hard-to-spell names. Butte, Montana is the butt of many a misspelling joke, while Mississippi has such a difficult name to spell that a little jingle was created to make it easier to learn.

Thanks to a new survey, we now know the 10 cities with even harder names to spell. The survey, which was conducted by Ketchum Global Research and Analytics for King Digital Entertainment, found that the 1,000 participating adults misspelled the cities below over 50 percent of the time.

According to a press release, baby boomers and millennials alike misspelled the city names with equal fervor, making us think that these names are just plain hard to spell no matter what.
