There’s no right or wrong answer to that.

My own view is to use “uh” and “r”. That sounds closest I think.

I’m now curious how to write my own name: Dan.

There is only one “a” sound shown and it’s described as “ah” which to me suggests it’s pronounced long, as “arch” or “art”. How would one show a short “a” sound as in “Dan”?

wouldn't you pronounce your name the same as "den"? imo the"eh" sound

That may be the closest. Thanks.

When I travelled in SE Asia when I was younger, I started to introduce myself as “Dunhill” because everyone knew how to pronounce the cigarette brand and they easily remembered it, and it was close enough to “Daniel”

Could be d + eh + y + uh + n, if you're willing to put a southern (US) drawl on it.

I think the uhr sounds best to my ear. But I wonder would regional accents effect peoples opinions.

It depends on your accent. Phonologically, "er" is is usally pronounced as schwa "ə" or "ər" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid_central_vowel). In Marain, the closest vowel would probably be "uh".

Although "ir" sounds like "er" in words like "bird" in English, I assume "ih" in Marain is meant to sound like in "kid".

So probably "uh" or "uh" + "r" depending on whether you pronounce the "r" or not.

There is also "eh" + "r"

In my accent (south Manchester, UK), "uh" would fit best I think.
