    How to pronounce Annia?

    I noticed someone suggested the name Annia on a thread, and I've never seen it before! Can anybody enlighten me as to pronunciation? Thank you!

    When I read it, I say it uh-ni-uh if that makes sense. The ni is like nEYE.

    It's an ancient Roman name so I would pronounce it AH-ni-ah, with the i pronounced like the ee in knee and the sound between the i and the a softer version of the y in Enya or the gn in lasagna. Or just AHN-gna, gn as in lasagna.

    Well, I was kind of torn between Anniah in the style of Hebrew names and Anya in the Russian style. Sounds like it may be "parent's choice!"

    To me, it looks like an Anglicized spelling of Áine. Áine is usually Anglicized to Anya though.
