    Imogene and Imogen are two different names.

    Imogen is said like IHM-ah-jun (or IHM-ah-jin or IHM-uh-jen etc, the last two vowel sounds are really small anyway so it doesn't matter much, I guess lots of it is in the accent too)
    Sort of like the word imagine, with the stress only on the first syllable.

    I like both names, but yeah, Imogene and Imogen are different from each other.

    I say Imogen with a sort of short jen/jun/jin sound - slightly more to "jen" but very little - and Imogene with a definitely "jean" sound, like Genie.

    I find both names adorable but different flavours to each other.

    I pronounce it IMM-ah-jen. I know at least four and that's how they all pronounce it. I'm from Australia, if that helps.
