Really?  Interesting tidbit!

Now, try and guess
> the pronunciation of this Sheffield place name -- "Beauchief"

okay:

Beecham

(I like to throw that in because I met someone named Beauchamp - it was very
confusing.  How can your nickname be Bo and your name be Beecham?)

Bewkey

Bokey?

Bewchay?  Bewcheff?

Bewley?

Buckley?

Bewsey?


I give up!
