I love the name, but I have to admit, being born and bred in the South, that the European city wasn't the first thing I thought of. Except I also had to re-pronounce the name in my head the "proper" way first, too.
In the South, "Vienna" is typically associated with a particular brand of canned sausages. And pronounced "VIE-enney". I'm not sure why. And I know it is wrong...just hard to shake what you grew up with sometimes. I hope this isn't bad news for you, but better to know now than later if it is, I suppose.
