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.

Random quote of the day:

“The difficulty really is psychological and exists in the perpetual torment that results from your saying to yourself, “But how can it be like that?” which is a reflection of uncontrolled but utterly vain desire to see it in terms of something familiar. . . .Do not keep saying to yourself, if you can possibly avoid it, “But how can it be like that?” because you will get “down the drain,” into a blind alley from which nobody has yet escaped.”

—Richard Feynman, “Quantum Mechanics,” The Messenger Lectures, MIT, 1964
