In Gaelic Irish...
>>"e" is as in peck
>>"th", whether a slender or broad consanant, is pronounced like the English "h"
>>"n" is the same in English
>>"e" at the end of a word/name is usually pronounced similar to English shwa (sp?) as in Caoimhe (KEE-va)
>>and Gaelic names almost always have the stress on the first syllable.
so I'm pretty positive it's EH-na, probably with a little guttal (sp? i've never actually seen that word written down) break in between the syllables.
If anyone can correct that, go ahead.
