I wince slightly every time I hear NPR reporter-commentator Michele Norris say her first name. She pronounces it MEE-shell, Paul McCartney-style. The correct way to say it is Meesh-ell with that French tongue-rolling sound on the second syllable. You can even say Mish-shell. If you’re going to go with the “mee” you need to tone it down and again, with the accent on the second syllable.
