It sounds something like Mohn-seh-rrat. You have to trill the r. It's a beautiful name in Spanish, but unfortunately it loses a lot of its prettiness when pronounced with an English accent.Little Bean arriving September 2014

It is quite common in Mexico and it does sound pretty in Spanish, but I have to agree with everyone that it doesn't sound so good in English.

The T is silent and it sounds absolutely nothing like 'monster rat' when spoken aloud, but alas, it's hard to get by that when written.
I think it's beautiful and very evocative-- like others, I think of Montserrat Caballe-- but even the literal meaning ("jagged mountain") is a tough sell.
@redwoodfey how interesting to have an Erica and a Montserrat in the same family!Blade, MD
