I've known about this name since I was in high school. I learned about in French class. It was part of film we watched. The name is actually a nickname for Marie. It is pronounced man-awn. What do you think? Potential as a stand alone name?

I don't think it sounds very attractive at all.

I personally am not keen on this name either, however if you like the name then why not ?

Have you ever seen the movie The Craft (1996) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115963/
Anyway its immediately what I thought of when I saw the name. In the movie (about witches) they believe in Manon who is a god like entity who they worship to for power.

I cant really see it for a girl, or for anyone really. I also think of Filet Mignon.

I know a girl called Manon, she is French and about 12 years old now. I think it is cute but not really useable in a non-French community because the pronounciation is not intuitive.

I remember going to kinder with a girl with the same name, so she'd be 20 or so now, and she wasn't French. Anyway, ever since the first time I heard it I have loved it, not sure why, I just think it's gorgeous!
