|Reply to:||Thoughts on Manon? by coldplayer9|
I wouldn't use it in the US. I speak French and have never heard anyone in the US pronounce Manon correctly. I know several because it's super common in France. One went to school with me. Her name got butchered into MANN-nonng, MAN-yong, MAH-nyong. Her dad is German and her mom Korean.
And no, it is definitely not rhyming with Shannon. I mean if you want to use that pronunciation it's fine with me but it's not the correct French pr. Try to listen to an audio file or something, it's hard to explain. The first part sounds like MAH, the second syllable like NAW (but it doesn't really come very close, it is a sound I can't explain. mah-naw, mah-no (don't open your mouth wide when you say the O) or mah-nawn would be as close as I can get).
