Easy way to remember Norfolk's pronunciation - "We don't, we don't drink, Norfuk, Norfuk"

It is definitely Nawfuk or Norfuk, depending on your city accent.

At Granby High we would tease Norfolk Catholic (at the time a few blocks down Granby Street) kids with this cheer....

They don't smoke and they don't drink, NAWFUK CATHOLIC....

That's funny I do that too. I was born in South Nawfuk and lived there as an adult for about 7 years.

Norfolk has absolutely zero New York, Massachusetts, or Louisiana influence in its founding. The "r" is absolutely to be pronounced. I think the "Naw" pronunciations came from early 20th century carpetbaggers.

I think the Nawfuk is very much old virginia. A lot like accents that you will hear from older folks from the Richmond area. That said, I think most people who are from this area and under 50-60 years old say Norfik.
