Like Helena, Joliet is named after a Midwestern town. In this case, a Northern Pacific Railroad official from Joliet, Ill. bestowed the name upon the Montana town. Despite the connection to the Illinois city, which is home to the now-shuttered Joliet Correctional Facility featured in the 1980 comedy film "The Blues Brothers," the two towns are pronounced differently. Joliet, Mont. is pronounced jah-lee-ETT'. The Joliet, Ill. town charter mandates that the emphasis should be put on the first syllable, with a long "o" sound as in "foe," with "any other pronunciations to be discouraged as interfering with the desired uniformity in respect to the proper pronunciation of the name of this city."
