What is the correct pronunciation of the surname Nguyen?

Expressed in IPA, the pronunciation of the name Nguyen is ŋʷə̌ˀn. The first syllable is similar to a glottal stop, the uy vowel sound is similar to the word "eye" and the ̌ˀ sound approximately represents another glottal stop.

As both of these are the French equivalents of Asian sounds, it can be very imprecise. Most US speakers give up on the NG (in sing) and indescript OO (oo-en) and settle for something close to "when" or "win".
