I've heard this pronounced multiple ways by people with the surname: wen, noo-win, nwen, and gwen. Maybe it's regional?

Nguyen is correctly written Nguyễn. It's the most common Vietnamese surname and corresponds to the Sino-Vietnamese symbol 阮. In this form, it may refer to an ancient musical instrument, a kind of round or moon-shaped lute. [noted -ed]
