How do you pronounce these names? Girl's edition.?

Which pronunciation do you prefer? OR how do you pronounce these names? When I offer choices, they are different ways of pronouncing names in different countries.

Corrine: Cor-een? This is kind of ugly to me.

Helene: Like Helen? Hell-in?

Eleanore: Like Eleanor? Ell-uh-nor?

Victoire: Victory?

Zoe: Zo-ee or Zo? The proper English way is Zo, which I prefer, what about you?

Imogen: Emma-jen?

Gisele: Jih-zhell or zee-zhell?

Genevieve: Jen-uh-veeve

    Corinne to me is: Cor-Inn

    Helene is: Hell-een

    Eleanore is how you put it.

    Zoe: Zo-ee, but I prefer the spelling Zoey if you use the pronunciation Zo-ee.

    Imogen: Imm-O-Jin

    Gisele: Jih-Zhell

    Genevieve: I've heard it Jen-uh-veeve or Jen-uh-Vee

    Corrine: I've only heard this pronounced Core-in, which is kind of pretty. Don't like Cor-een though.

    Helene: No idea. Like Helen I guess.

    Eleanore: Ell-uh-nor

    Victoire: Like Veek-twar. It sounds a little weird without the French accent.

    Zoe: I've seen this one pronounced Zo-ee and Zo. I prefer Zo though, maybe Zoey as a nickname.

    Imogen: Heard Em-oh-geen and Em-uh-gen. Don't really like either of them lol.

    Gisele: Jih-zhelle.

    Genevieve: Jen-uh-veeve...never heard it any other way and I think it's very pretty like that.

    Michaela: Ma-kay-la or Mick-kay-la, just like Mikayla/Makayla. I have seen some people read it as Muh-kay-ell-a the first time though. (This is my daughter's name)

    Corrine: Core-een

    Helene: Helen or Hel-aine

    Eleanore: Ell-uh-nor

    Victoire: Vic-twah (like the French for three). Victory's not right

    Zoe: Zo-ee...which is the proper English version. Except the name is meant to be Zoë.

    Imogen: imm-oh-jen. My name :) it can also be Imm-oh-jean (normally spelt Imogene) but I hate that pronunciation. I had a teacher who always called me Imogene and it was so annoying.

    Gisele: Jih-zhell

    Genevieve: Jen-uh-veeve

    Michaela: Mick-ay-luh

    a million. Amelia 2. Brianna 3. Caitlin 4. Dahlia 5. Emily 6. Felicia 7. Guinevere 8. Helena 9. Isabelle 10. Juliet BQ: not likely ... a number of them, confident, yet not all of them. i think of Josephine or Juliet do not likely artwork -- i does not call Josephine sparkling. Josephine's aiming for a comeback, in spite of the undeniable fact that that's not a sparkling selection. i'm not sure that Bianca is any extra energizing than Brianna, the two, or that Charissa is sparkling in any respect -- i've got in no way even heard of it.
