Question Pronunciation?

These seem to be the most common panther locales. How about a little help with the pronunciation? Please and thank you!

Madagascar is an old French colony and while Malagasy is spoken it still retains a large French influence. They are pronounced as such:

Am BAN Jah
Am BEE Low Bay (Not lobe)
Naw See Bay (Not nosy)
Naw See Folly
Naw See MitSeeOh

Also sorry if I haven't been pronouncing them right, but that's just how I hear them in videos. That's just how the breeders and people who own them say it.

I had no idea about the language origin. Thanks for the help. It's like saying Betta fish. It's Beh-ta not bay-ta.
