It's French, duh!

There is no R in the name and there is no R sound in the pronunciation. It is a classic French sound, famous for the fact that most Americans cannot master it.

Pronouncing it with an R would be even worse and I wouldn't be surprised if this got picked up by a French periodical for the express purpose of making us the target of further ridicule.

BTW, there's no P sound in corpsman, either.
