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!

I tried several times to explain to Esther and Via how to prononce Marseille and Camille, without result, I won't try again with Monfils. lol

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