Beats the heck outta me. I'm hardly a native, only been here 11 years. I blame the Brits. (No offense.) I think it's a corruption of an Anglicized version of an American Indian name. (The second "c" was probably not silent, originally.) A number of New England cities (Gloucester, Worcester, Greenwich) are apparently pronounced like their English originals. (Some of the hard core Massachusetts people pronounce Worcester something like wista. They haven't managed to get rid of R completely, but they try.)

The proper way to say it is Connec-ticut......back in the day, the c wasn't silent. I still hear people say it like that occasionally.

ah, yeah, I think I've heard Gloucester pronounced Gl-oww-chester instead of Gloss-ter...

... interesting, I wonder when the C started slipping out of the word. Well, thank you both for clearing up my age-old query about Connecticut's pronunciation, I've been wondering about it for years and I think your explanations will keep me content now rather than quizzical and confused

Well, I think that's all my on-topic (and off-topic ) queries solved, so 'thread solved'. Thank you all again for the helpful information and advice
