I wonder if the pronunciation is right here. It looks like it should be "Men-en-nah." But I'm hearing "Men-nah."

You should be hearing something like "men'n-neh"

I'm definitely hearing two syllables.

Me too; I hear men-neh just like tallerkenene sounds like taller-keh-neh. But when I listen to mennene on Forvo you can definitely here it men'n-neh. Guess it's proof you always trust a native speaker over a robot :-P

It's like fveldig says: it's men'n-neh . You might notice the n'n is slightly longer than the other n . In Norwegian, they sort of run letters and syllables together like that.

I hear "mønnene" (and I'm quite used to hearing Norwegian, so there's something wrong... or is it a dialect?)

That's quite clear 'e', don't know how you hear 'ø'.
