Comments for the name Agnès

Comments for AGNÈS:

I was told that the name AGNÈS is pronounced more like "an-YE" than "ag-NESS", although I'm not sure if that's correct. If it is, then AGNÈS sounds much prettier than AGNES (which is a cool name in my opinion, but a bit clumsy-sounding).

Considering that this is French, it should be pronounced more like "ahn-YE".

I'm French and I know several "Agnès": the French pronunciation is indeed an-YES or a-NYES.

I speak French and my mother's name is Marie-Agnes and Marie-Amelie is correct about the pronunciation.
