The French pronunciation is, SAIRZH, which I think is MUCH more elegant than the Americanized, SURGE.

A famous bearer of the name Serge is Serge Gainsbourgh, a singer famous for his collaborations with Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, as well as the risque subject matter of his songs. He is the father of Charlotte Gainsbourgh.

It bothers me that Americans often pronounce it like sir-gay, like the Russian Sergei. I've even heard this on the radio.

An alternate spelling "Serj" is used by the lead singer of System of a Down, Serj Tankian. He's, well. He's a beast. Very awesome.
