Pronounce it "P. Henry," if pronounce it you must. I'm a senior technical writer from the United States.

comment Is it correct to say “remarkable culinary skills” in a résumé?
This probably belongs at Workplace SE, but I'll attach my opinion to it in case it gets sent over there: I would think it weird if I saw the word "remarkable" in a résumé, and that's not a context in which you want language to stand out for the wrong reasons. Remarkable is also a bit of a double-edged sword, as demonstrated by the old joke: "It's remarkable, all right; you should hear some of the remarks people have made about it."
