I like the name and have tried to research how people say it (even watching interviews with Cormac McCarthy, haha), but I still haven’t found anything solid. If you’re willing, it would also be helpful to get comments about your pronunciation and where your accent is from (ex “I have a midwest American accident and I think I would say Cor-mec”). Thanks for your help!
Northeast US here and my instinct is to say Cor-mic. We just don’t typically enunciate vowels at the end of words like that. But that being said, if someone corrected me that their name is pronounced cor-MAC I wouldn’t be surprised and I think I could switch to that pronunciation pretty easily. Cor-mec would be harder for me.
