Its not Spanish. The "R" is more silent than anything. Its actually more of a "w" sound.

the "french" way to say an "r" is to have it come from the the throat, but it's not needed for the name.

No, I got that part. But you were splitting it up into four syllables and putting that "A" sound on the end, which confused me. That was why I asked the question in the first place. I wasn't sure if it was pronounced like the two examples already given here or like Morrissey. I think FOI and comiddle are probably right though. That sounds like the most sensible pronunciation. But wtf do I know?

kthxbuyyyyyy//////

I took a year of French in college and don't recall ever having to roll the r's.

It's only going to sound like "-ay" at the end if it has an accent on the letter E.
