Camille is only pronounced "ka-MEEL" in English speaking countries. It's correct pronunciation is "Kah-MEE".

Kah-MEE is the French pronunciation of the name. Camille is a popular name in France.

Everyone above is both right and wrong. In France, Camille is pronounced "Cah-mee", but only in the feminine. The male is pronounced "Cah-meel". This is per my friend who was born and raised in France.

I'm quite sure that in English-speaking counties, this name is pronounced cuh-meal, which I think is lovely.

I've known two Camilles who both pronounce it Cah-MEEL, since they are American. I think it is a beautiful name that sounds adorable on a little girl and perfect on an adult as well. Maybe it's just because I've grown up with a Camille (litteraly, we've known each other since she was born) but, to me, a girl named Camille is very happy, smart, understanding and all around fun.

I know someone named Camille who pronounces it ka-MEE. I don't really like this name, it sounds too delicate.

In English-speaking countries where it has been adapted, it is pronounced ka-MEEL not the French-speaking ka-MEE.
