I presume that Spaniards would treat it as one of the many Spanish words and names ending in -ín and say ma-too-REEN.  (It was brought to Ireland by Huguenots, but for purposes of Aubrey/Maturin it’s an Irish name, pronounced as in my previous comment.) As for Domanova, it’s a Catalan/Languedoc place name from the phrase doma nova ‘new house,’ so it would be do-ma-NO-va.

Maturin is also a Spanish placename, specifically the name of a city in Venezuela, and in that context is pronounced as LH indicates: Your Dictionary
