Pretty self-explanetory. I just need to know how to pronounce Alamanni correctly.

We say "Alemannen" in Germany. "A-le-man-en". :P

I find most all German pronunciation of their tribal ancestors more authentic and easier on the ears than does English. If you want to know how to pronounce anything correctly, go to the source.

you would pronounce it like that:

UUh-luh-muh-nni

Click on ''Play'' on the right side, that's how it's supposed to be pronounced although I guess it should be quite hard for an English-speaking person to pronounce it properly.

May I ask you whether you have Alemannic ancestors?
