"Ae" in the english languae is usually pronounced as like a short vowel "A" as in Cat.
So Daemon would be pronounced Dammon.
International Phonetic Alphabet
The symbol [] is also used in the International Phonetic Alphabet to denote a near-open front unrounded vowel like in the word cat in many dialects of Modern English, which is the sound that was most likely represented by the Old English letter. In the IPA, it is always in lowercase.

I incorrectly pronounce it 'DAY-minn' (phonetically), since 'dae' technically sounds like 'day'. So if I sent an email to Matt Damon, SMTP would communicate with Matt Damon's daemon.
