I think that Manon is a beautiful name; it sounds very sturdy and strong for a female.

"Manon Lescaut" was a novel by the Abbé Prévost. It was the basis for operas by both Puccini, Massanet and Auber.

Actually, it's pronounced more like May-noh.

Manon Lescaut is also a play from Czech writer Vitezslav Nezval. I fell in love with this name after seeing the play.

My name is Manon, and I think it's a beautiful name. I think it reflects my nature - I think Manon is a beautiful, strong and kind person, that can be rather quiet - and that definitely reflects the person I am! I wouldn't want another name for me!

Also a fairly common Welsh girls' name, pronounced MAH-non.

Manon was originally a nickname for Marianne (explaining the _n_) and later became a nickname for Marie. Nowadays. It is more often used as an independant name. In France short forms of names (such as Manon, Ninon and Lilou) have become increasingly popular as official names. In 2009, Manon ranked at #3 in the most popular names given to baby girls in France.

The little sister of my French exchange partner was called Manon. It seemed to be pronounced Mah-non.

This is my cousin's name, and she pronounces it Meh-NAH.

It's hard to explain the pronunciation, but its something like 'MAH-nohn', the last syllable sounding like the English word known. The last n is very subtle.

I have only heard it pronounced MAH-non, with a very subtle n at the end. This name is really trendy in France and has only been in common use since the late 80's. I don't see the appeal personally.

It is pronounced Mah non (with a nasal sound without pronouncing the last n). It is very popular in Quebec, Canada. When I grew up, I didn't know anyone else with my name and wasn't sure if I liked it because I felt like I was the only one with that name. When I moved to the US, people loved it and thought it was a nickname but I reassured them that it was my real name and I started liking my name. Now when you go to Canada, you see tons and tons of Manon's. Celine Dion has a sister named Manon. I think it is a beautiful name, strong and feminine at the same time. I wouldn't want any other name.

I am named Manon and I am American and to me, my name is embarrassing because EVERYONE says it wrong!

Manon von Gerkan is a German model and actress, who reached the height of her popularity during the 1990s. She is the daughter of German architect Meinhard von Gerkan and a former girlfriend of American illusionist and stunt performer David Blaine. She also designs and markets a line of jewelry. She is probably best known in the United States for her role as Mauricio's girlfriend Lindy in the 2001 comedy Shallow Hal.

There is a Manon in Sarah J Maas' Throne of Glass series. She is a witch, and a very strong female character. I think it's supposed to be pronounced mah-NOHn but I prefer MAH-nun.
