    I used to pronounce it Shah-m'n, but heard the name of that one-hit wonder band pronounced 'Shay-mun' so that's what I go with now... but I don't really care that much.

    Depending on nothing in particular, I usually pronounce it "Shaw-mun", and occasionally "Shay-mun.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    I guess Shaman's one of those words with no specific pronunciation?
    Though as Snowsquatch posted, there's always the X-Men cartoon to go by.
