I've heard this name pronounced "ah-THEEN" and "ah-THEE-nah" (like Athena.) Can someone tell me which is correct?

According to dictionary.com, A·the·ne (/əˈθini/) should be pronounced: [uh-thee-nee] or [ə-THEE-nee], with stress on the second syllable.

The French pronunciation is actually more like "Atune" (A as in "at" and "tune") I'm not sure how to explain it but somewhat like the name Adam but with a T sound instead of the D. The "e" at the end is NOT stressed as "ee" or really even pronounced.

Forvo.com has a German pronunciation that sounds more like the pronunciations people are suggesting.
