It is French so you have to say it through your nose while coughing up a hairball.How do YOU pronounce it, Granger? (Gran'-ger, Gran-ger' or Grain'-ger)
I had been meaning to ask but didn't know the best protocol for such a question.
Think "groan" but leave off the "n" and stress the vowels (because the French like vowels) and then "shay". Don't pronounce the final "r" (because the French hate consonants) "Groa-shay". It is also a Cajun name so it is tweaked a little more but that is hard to describe phonetically and is probably not strictly correct anyway.
