[SWE] Pronounciation

I'd like to know how to pronounce the names Johan and Johannes.

I've always said them this way :

Yo-Hahn
and
Yo-Hahn-Es

but I wonder because both could have the same pronounciation or they could also be pronounced these ways :

Jo-Hahn
Jo-Hahn-Es

Of course, that slipped my mind. Too much banana dancing for me..

That's right.

The Fors-part of Forsberg is pronounced by large parts of the population as
Fosj(Swedish)
Fosh(English)

I think that depends a bit on which dialect you speak in. But we are getting worse on pronounciating all letters in some words these days and because of that Johan sometimes become Joan.
