    Pronounce
    Hello! Okay I don't really know how to word this question so I'm going to try the best I can. Haha, all right so my second name is Cleōne. With the hyphen over the o vowel. Well, I was always told that it was a French name. And I am pretty sure it's Greek. But anyway, if I did want it to sound/look more French and contain a long O sound Would I change the ō in Cleōne to or ? Or would I not even use an accent? Also, would I add the vowel with that accent mark to in my second name? I am sorry I'm terrible at trying to explain my question. But my middle name is pronounced like Kleh-Oan. I did look at some French names and looked up online that the long O doesn't always need an accent too. It's all rather confusing to me.

    You can pronounce it anyway you want. You don't need a diacritical mark at all. Even words derived from other languages have changed. In Spanish, they word canon with a tilde over the first n ( I can't insert one on this keyboard) had been replaced with an ny, canyon.
