I suspect that this name was originally pronounced as [mɔ̃tɑ:g] in French, with the "o" nasalised and the "gue" pronounced only as though it were "g". I am uncertain as to how Shakespeare would have pronounced it, however.

I think this name sounds ugly, pretentious, and faux-French.

In Scotland this name would be pronounced Mon-tay-gay. Not sure why! Source of much mis-pronunciation.

Remember Duck the Great Western Engine, from "Thomas and Friends"? His real name is Montague!

Super cool and unique! I love the name Monte, and this would be the perfect excuse without having to use Montgomery, hehe.

I don't really like the name to begin with, however for someone to name a child this, they must be real Shakespeare enthusiasts.

A recent (and somewhat well-known) bearer of this name is Montague George Hector Horner (born on 21 January 2017), the son of the English singer Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell (b. 1972) and her husband Christian Horner (b. 1973). They refer to him as Monty (at least for now, while he is still little). He is their first child together, but the second child for each of his parents, as both already have a daughter from a previous relationship.
