    I always thought munn, if you're talking basic phonetics.

    I mentally pronounce it as a short double o sound, like book/soot/good. Not like room/food/cool, which are long double o sounds. The closest rhyme or similar word I could find was the first syllable of mujahideen.

    I think I say it like @Blujixapug - like "moon" but with a slightly shortened middle of the syllable.

    Greyskin, as opposed to pinkskin, which refers to humans. All you mammals look pretty much the same.

    /mʊn/

    Silent h, vowel like the u in "put" or the first syllable of "woman", which for me, at least, is the same as in book/soot/good.

    I pronounce it as something pretty close to "moon", mostly because I don't like how any of the alternatives sound.

    The pronunciation of Targossas was different than I thought, but I still don't know the correct way to pronounce Mhun, and it seems everyone has their own answer.

    I think it's Mun. Rhymes with bun.

    I'm still going to say Mhaldor how I want to and just blame it on a speech impediment.

    ... How do you say it? I presumed it was "mall-door" even before the pronunciation guide.

    Do you say "mall-der"?

    Mall-door.

    Mal-door and mjoons, like the first syllable of mjolnir. Rhymes with soon.

    I have a propensity for pronouncing written names completely incorrectly.

    But that's the correct pronunciation! Not sure why you're apologizing!
