Tommy, at first I thought this was another of Mr. B's threads, then I thought you went crazy on the keyboard and made up that name, sooooo I Googled it.

"The word, the French spelling of an Indian name, is pronounced "CHOO-tah-kah-BUH-fuh", or locally as "CHOO-tah-kah-buff".
The Tchoutacabouffa river is in southern Mississippi and flows through part of Biloxi."
