Message:  Thanks a lot for this very precise explanation, and in the good direction, making a complete difference with the French Mickey-Mouse.
By the way, Tophe is pronounced Tof here in France but my family in law, in the Philippines, says Tofee...
For Mickey Newbury, the right pronunciation is required for the novel I am writing (as hobby), where a young girl has invented a phonetic simple spelling in usual letters, and her lover is happy to tell her (in a letter) he lives in Mickey Newbury Street (in French "Rue Mickey Newbury"), name of his favourite singer (like me, the writer...).
