Brouilettes Creek IN 163 Bridge

I've heard it said "Brew-lets"

...But that's Hoosier pronunciation and we tend to say it a little different. Wouldn't be the first French name we have altered!

Versailles... Originally "Ver-si"... We call it "Vur-sails".

Don't even ask me about the town Vevay... I haven't totally figured that one out yet!

According to the sign, it is spelled Brouiletts Creek. My question, how do you pronounce it? Would it be similar to, say, Robert Goulet? Or perhaps, like, Russian Roulette? A snack for thought.
