Hello Patt,

I will be interested in seeing replies to this question. I am fron St.
Louis and later lived in St. Louis County. I do not remember seeing "Saint"
spelled out, and I use "St. Louis" in TMG, although I don't abbreviate
anything else.

I just looked at the Visitors and Convention Bureau site for St. Louis and
they use the "St.Louis" name, as does the "City of St. Louis" website. The
only place I found "Saint Louis" used online is for the Saint Louis
Cathedral/ Basilica of Saint Louis - which is located in St. Louis <G>.

I agree that county is best shown as county and not Co. However I would like
to hear some opinions on St or Saint.

Is it St Louis or Saint Louis, etc.

Do you abbreviate or do you spell it out and why did you choose that?
