Never mind. Should have done my research FIRST. Found a 2007 thread. "marans" rhymes with Karen. I have a debate with 2 friends. We are disagreeing over how "maran" is pronounced. I say "meh-ren" with emphasis on first syllable Patricia says, "Mah-rahn" emphasis 2nd syllable Andrea says, "Mah-ren" emphasis 1st syllable I can't find it in dictionary or wikipedia. Does anybody REALLY know for sure?? Thanks!
