I pronounce it NEE-non.

This was the name of Ninon de L'Enclos, a famous French author, art patron, and courtesan. She is not very well known in the English speaking world, but is very famous in France as a symbol of female beauty.

I like Ninon so much! It's feminine, beautiful, sweet. Simply one of the prettiest girls' names out there.

This could, in a way, be the French equivalent of Nancy. I believe it is pronounced similarly to Manon- so probably something like nee-NOn, with a very subtle n at the end. It seems like a lot of nicknames are becoming fashionable in France. In the 50's, -ette diminutives like josette were very popular. I personally am not a big fan of this. I don't know why, but it sounds masculine. Maybe because its similar to the Spanish word 'niƱo', which means boy.
