    New-wahr is how I would pronounce it. I guessed boy and I was wrong. I suppose it's not that bad, but I don't like it very much. Thinking it over it gets better. I picture an African American child whose parents may want to honor a French heritage (such as Haitian or French or Some other French speaking country to which the family has ties to.) It's not a name I would use.
    Good Luck!

    Being French, I personally wouldn't use it. It would be as weird as naming your child Black.

    I would pronounce it as close to the French way as I can, but it doesn't sound as pretty in an American/French accent as it would in a native Accent. So I say if you're a native speaker, go for it. If not, skip it or put it in the middle

    I'd pronounce it like "n'waar" kind of. It's hard to write pronunciations! I think of "film noir" and "pinot noir", neither of which seem like appropriate connotations for a little girl's name, but I suppose it could be worse.
