Is Couesnon pronounced Koos non or Keys non?
It's pronounced "QUAY-non."
I'll go with Kwee-non also.
"Qway" or "Qweh" in sound?
I've always been curious, I've heard it both ways.
Was wondering about that myself a while back. I was with a French woman, and the way she said to pronounce it is something I can't easily spell (phonetically), but it was something like "khwee" -- but with "air" issuing-forth from the mouth, as only a French person can. .(?)
**as a side note, I went out with a Japanese girl, and I just had to ask her how to pronounce Yanagisawa (the saxophone) -- and it is "yan-a-GEESE-ee-wa". Lay that on your "know-it-all" sax buddies!!

That's why they're known as "Queenies"
Here it is:
Americans and other english speakers tend to use a long "E" vowel sound when pronouncing this brand name. It's the standard pronunciation amongst trumpeters and what has become accepted.
the correct French pronunciation is as Tom stated with the short "e" vowel sound. And if you really want to win that date with Gigi, drop the final "n" and almost breathe an "h" sound instead. That ought to curl her snails for her.
Those stinkin' French . . . why can't the speak English correctly !
