Well, unless you are French. Then you don't pronounce "H". The remaining
letters are pronounced according to the Règlements de l'Académie.
On the other hand, the name "Chevalier" is pronounced as it should be. 

But, on the other hand, if you are Italian, you should take into account
that no word may terminate on a consonant, so you have to add another
schwa, or a Sicilian Variant of that at the end.
