    Pronounce Oenone

    I'm just wondering if anyone knows how to pronounce Oenone. My instinct is uh-WEN-on-ee, which I know is wrong, but I have found both eh-EE-own-ee and ee-NO-nee.

    I think it's EE-nuh-nee. (Well, probably technically EE-non-ee, but most people make those o sounds in the Greek ones as a schwa, like Antigone (anTIGuhnee))

    It's ee-NO-nee (o like in dove).

    I studied the classics (Greek mythology) by the way, so I should know.
