I've always heard it's Moosil"lock" and is derived from the native american words Moose and Hillock, whatever they mean.

I don't believe the rules of the English language apply to it if it's French, German or Norse in origin


The vast majority of English words are of French or Old Germanic (Old Norse) origin. The Angles, Saxons, and Jutes (speaking old Germanic tongues) had been in England for years when William the Conqueror arrived in 1066 and brought French with him.

Willey is Willey for the reasons Kathy cited.

And speaking of French, Guyot is French, as someone noted, and it rhymes with Leo. In French and Italian and several other languages (including English for the most part), if a 'g' is followed by an 'a' or 'o' or 'u', the g is a hard g, as in gamble. If it is followed by an 'e' or an 'i' it is a soft g, as in George. There are exceptions, of course, but that's the general rule. JP
