I'm adding them all the list, however which of the following should we request:
a) NYC = "New York City"
b) NYC = "NYC" (the letters)
c) N.Y.C. = "New York City"
d) N.Y.C. = "NYC" (the letters)
I'm thinking b and c.
(As a side note, Excel says "New York City" for "NYC" and says the letters "N", "Y", "C" for "N.Y.C")

Another one to just spell out? Though I'm not sure what "pr" would otherwise conflict with.

Sketch pointed out yesterday in another thread that "Iberville" is pronounced "d'Iberville", which is surprising. We pronounce the street "EYE-ber-vil" whereas d'Iberville, like the town in Mississippi, is usually pronounced "dee-IHB-er-vil".
