pronunciation dictionary in ios10

Trying to get voiceover to pronounce my last name using the French Canadian Emily voice. When I set it up and choose the voice I want it works, but my settings aren't saved when I back out. The only way that works for me so far is to write out the way it is spelt and then replace it with a phonetic pronounciation. This works, but I would prefer my name to be pronounced with a proper French Canadian accent. I have the French Canadian Emily voice downloaded on my IPhone 6 already. Will I have to live with the phonetic pronounciation of Baillargeon or am I missing something here?
