No one has said how to pronounce this.. Pinyin can be a bit confusing. I've never heard of the river either. My best guess would be 'Shee-yahng'.

The X is pronounced as a SH sound, but be careful to note that the tongue is placed behind the teeth to make this sound. Also, the I+A are blended together to create one syllable.

翔 (xiáng) 祥 (xiáng) 香 (xiāng) 湘 (xiāng)
Xiáng is pronounced like "shyang?". As if you're asking a question - that is the proper tone.
Xiāng is pronounced like "shyang-", with a drawn out "aa" sound.
