"The reason Bogota is called buh-GO-ta - and not the South American sounding bo-go-TA - is that the word has nothing to do with Colombia or its capital, Bogota. The "Bog" recalls the Bogarts and the "ta" is for the Bantas, two families that used to own all of what is now Bogota. "Or so the story goes," Henry Komorowski, the borough historian, said dryly. In any case, the story explains the first syllable and the last. But what about that "O" in the middle? It might have come about as a means of making pronunciation easier, Komorowski said."
