 Her name is pronounced just as it appears..."CAR" [like an automobile] "MEN" [like more than one man]
 
Like the title of the opera...

I have a question about the pronunciation of the first name of singer Carmen McRae. I heard an announcer do it as "COR mun" and I was wondering if there was any precedent for that...
