Not related to the German name, but Ute is also the name of a Native American people.

I have only ever heard this pronounced OO-tə (including my aunt from Germany), as the database says, until today. I met a woman from Germany who pronounces it YOO-tee. I don't know how common this pronunciation is and it may be a regional thing.

Ute is the mother of the Burgundian king Gunther and his brothers Giselher and Gernot in the Nibelungenlied.

This is my mother's name and she pronounces it OO-teh. She immigrated from Germany and this is the common pronunciation. The Native American tribe named Ute pronounces it YOO-tee, which is completely different and drives my mother insane.

Wrong variations are YOO-tah (like the state Utah), YOO-tee, OO-tee, OO-duh, YOOT, or anything with 'YOO' or "TEE" in it.
