Cairo, IL
The last book I read (American Gods by Neil Gaiman) and the book I'm currently reading (The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson) both mention the town Cairo, Illinois, and they both mention that the locals pronounce it KAY-ro. Interesting synchronicity.

Named after the syrup, not the Egyptian city, I guess?
