I think it is Uh-theen-ee or uh-theen-ay, since an 'e' at the end of a name tends to be pronounced as 'ee' or even 'ay'. It is more likely for it to be pronounced uh-theen-ee, since most of the time the 'e' is pronounced as 'ee' at the end of most Greek names. (Persephone, Phoebe, Xene, Aoide, and others all have the 'e' at the end pronounced as 'ee' and Agape has the 'e' pronounced as 'ay'.)
