French pronunciation

Hi,

first time poster here, so I hope I'm doing this right ...:

With French names such as Barat (as in Sophie Barat) or Barras (as in Paul Barras), would you pronounce the t / s at the end?

I think I was taught to say "Bará", but an acquaintance of mine who went to a "Sophie Barat School" keeps confusing me by pronouncing the "t" and stressing the first syllable.
