>> Foreign language names can vary in their pronunciations over time. For
>> instance, the city of Pueblo, CO for a long time was pronounced by locals
>> in an American way, but now is back to the Spanish way. I know of a town
>> called Nevada, pronounced with a long a. Neither it nor the state is
>> pronounced the way the Spanish word is pronounced (it’s funny that a state
>> known for being desert has the same name as a popular Disney princess).
> If you are referring to Frozen, it is better translated to spanish as
> "congelada" o "helada". Nevada should be translated as "snow-covered" or
The Disney princess I was thinking of is Snow White.
