French term or phrase: Daxbunnies
I've been matched with this person through an online dating service, and I would like to know how to pronounce his name
Amelia Cypert
Daxbunnies
Explanation:
Well, your question is curious and funny.
I would pronounce this name Dax Bunnies, insisting on the ies like a plural of bunny. Let's try something: if you say "bugs bunny" (this hero-rabbit of a cartoon) you have to pronounce buks bunny. It is the same with Dax = Daks. And bunnies has to be pronounced like bunny but just as a plural.
It this a good example? :-)

  -> Yes, this man must be a good one. :-) Thank your Melissa.

agree  Helen Shiner: Is this one or more men, you have to ask? He might at least be solvent, if the Dax has anything to do with the financial index! Hope it goes well for you.

  -> Apparently, this is the name of one man only. Dax could be also the name of this town in France (South West) and blown by the hurricane last week. Thanks Helen!

agree  juliebarba: Dax is a town not an index! I had the misfortune of going to it's wine tasting week a few times - it gets a bit lively ;-)
