    Armand?

    So I think I really like the name Armand. I used to know an Armand in elementary school and I remember having no trouble saying his name back then but now I'm having a bit of trouble. Is it like almond with an "r" or is is like Arm-in? Arm-on? or some other way? Also what do you think of the name Armand? What kind of person does the name bring to mind? Does it work with a surname similar to Norseton? What would be good middle names for Armand ---- Norseton?

    I went to school with an Armand. Said like Arm-ohnd. Some people said Ara-mond. He was really a kind person and actually quite sexy. Tall, slim but naturally muscular & dark complected.

    Yeah, that's the original way or more European way to pronounce it, I think. I consulted my brother, who was friends with the Armand I knew, and he was certain that our Armand pronounced it like Are + mund (like in Edmund or Raymond). I think I have heard of other people saying it my way. I was just confused because BtN says ar-MAWN is the only correct pronounciation (French) , and that is definitely not how I've heard it. Has anyone else heard ar-mund? Is it usable pronounced that way? Oh and does Ari work as a nickname for Armand? That idea just made me like it even more.

    I think Armand is a very handsome name! Sure, Ari would be a fine nickname.

    If you want to say it in English it is fairly simple and can be said either ARM-on or arm-OND. If you want to say in proper french it is a little trickier. Behind the Names has it listed as ar-MAW (the R is rolled and the end sounds nasal).

    I like Armand and Armande (the female version). They aren't that uncommon where I live, although not overly popular either. I have a hard time picturing it on a small child or a baby, but would love to meet one.
