I have always pronounced it Me(b)-en as have all my folks. Sometimes you have to give in to the occasional telemarketer who insists on destroying it and the only way to get beyond that is to agree that it appears to be Mee-Bane. I think theirs a certain Southern flair to saying Me(b)-en like you would when on the portch of your great plantation as you sip slowly on a lemonade.
