Well let's start with the correct spelling. It's MONFILS. As to how you should pronounce it, think of Monday and take the first syllab. Then, add sthg like if you were reading "feece". But you know, Gael is great to pronounce too! :D ;)

In French mon fils = my son so that it doesn't stay a private joke only... ;)

Marseille? Well, take "March", but stop before the "tch" sound. And simply add "say"... :D That should come close to a correct pronounciation! ;)
