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!

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.

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.
