Would possibly use this on a girl or a fictional character. NEVER a real-life boy, though.

In accordance with French pronunciation, this name would be pronounced "yA-sAnt'" as opposed to the English "Hie-uh-sinth."
The reasons for this are:
In most French words or names, the letter h is not aspirate. Also, the th is not pronounced the way an English speaker might pronounce it, for the h is silent in this letter combination as well, hence making a "t" sound rather than the "th" sound. Finally, the "in" in Hyacinthe is a nasal sound in French and the nasal "in" is more like an "ahn" in English than an "ihn" or "een."
