There is no right or wrong answer here.

I'm just trying to get an idea of how a name reads to people. It's for a character in a fantasy novel. It would be helpful if you could not only tell me how you think it's pronounced, but where the emphasis goes. Example: Kukomo. KOOK-oh-mo, KU-ko-mo, Ku-KO-mo, Ku-ko-MOO. You get it.

This is the name I would like to know about: Ramannes.

I can offer you nothing in return but my sincere thanks and ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.

Thank you.

It must be my high school French, but I read it as ruh MONS.

Like sartorias but with my typical way of deforming the "ah" into "uh" :P

Northern Germany

I pronounce it on the first syllable: RAA-manès (our "a" sounds like the "u" in "cut")
