This looks like a take on Eugene. Y sounds are written with Js in several languages, and u and v have history together. Eugene in Russian is often transferred from the Cyrillic alphabet to the Roman with Yevgeny. That ij combo is classically Dutch, like Rebecca Romijn Stamos (who is now Rebecca Romijn again). But it looks too Slavic for that. I think ij is used in some Slavic languages. Googling around, the name seems to hit some people of Latvian origin. So, I think that's it - Latvian version of Eugene/Yevgeny.
I'd guess the pronunciation is Yev jen ees, but I could be wrong.
