If you mean how would a klingon pronounce your name then I can help.
Some of my mates use the klingon version because it is a lot more 
attention catching (but they don't speak klingon).

There are two versions, both similar

ma'chu and machu'. I guess you could use ma'chu', but I believe that
because both syllables are cut short, it is hard to hear the vowl sounds.
The first version is closer to the english and the second is more authentic
because (IMO) the klingon sound is more prominent.

Just my penny's worth, make of it what you will.
