I speak French and this name is not pronounced IN-druh. The first syllable (In) would sound like the word "on." The "dre" ending would almost be muted, you really only pronounce the "d." Really, "Indre" is pronounced "ON-dr" (with the "r" at the back of the throat). I understand this is an "Americanized" version, but it's completely wrong.
