Why do people say Nevada wrong?

It is really annoying like on t.v Nev AH DAH it sounds dumb. You say it like Nev ADD da

Its because for some reason people outside the state of Nevada insist it is pronounced as a spanish word, ignoring the fact that literally no other spanish named State is pronounced in the Spanish accent. Its Nehv-Add-uh.

I say it more nev-ah-dah like you. But maybe that's because I'm Norwegian and we don't say the A's so much. I agree, for some reason it's really annoying to hear people say Nev-add-da.
