Particularly, how would you pronounce it? I always thought I’d was just Mag-nus, but then just heard some people pronounce it Mang-us.

Always Mag-nus here!

Mag-nus.

Lovely name.

It's Mag-nus.

Just like Agnes is not pronounced like Angus.

Thanks. It’s going on the list!

Mag-nus

But it is pronounced differently in the north (east?) of Scotland. Man-us, I think?

Who on earth is saying Mangus? They are mis-reading the name and thinking of Angus.

It’s MAG-nus. Nice name. And so easy to pronounce, there’s really no excuse not to.

Mag-nus - I used to know one who was a sibling to Titan.

Surname was along the lines of dweeb/wimp grin brilliant combination!

I gave birth to a Magnus on Tuesday. Call it the hormones but I couldn't be happier with the nane for my unique, gorgeous little boy

Congratulations Muse.
