"AHN-yah"...at least that's what my memory is telling me.

I did a lot of Pronunciation research in the past couple of days and I
actually came up with 2 different pronunciations, one was from pre
12th century and would be AWeenah and the other one is the way I have
been pronouncing it AYnah (which is very close to how your friend
pronounces it without the russian sound). Interesting that she is a
Chirugeon, since I am a modern day paramedic LOL. Maybe I will meet
her at a Pennsic someday!
So sign me
