Neither of them actually pronounce it correctly. It's UHN-juh-lee. This is my name as well. I used to let people call me ON-jah-lee and ANN-jah-lee because I never wanted to correct people to pronounce it the actual Sanskrit way but now I make sure people say it right!

This is my name! However it's not pronounced like Angela. The A's make a "u" sound. It's pronounced "UN-juh-lee".

I knew someone of Indian descent with this beautiful. It might be perceived as a misspelling, though
