Aine without the accent is more than likely for the US namers on this site. The US barely recognizes apostrophes and hyphens, and does not recognize other accent symbols at all.

Áine is pronounced "AWN-yeh" or "AWN-ya". It is correctly labelled as such on the "Aine" name page, where it is accidentally without the accent.
