Just wondering how you would pronounce Tanami?

I'm asking for a friend, it is the name of a desert in Australia and she asked me what I thought of it. I think it will have pronounciation issues so wanted to get first impressions.

Is she thinking of it as a name? Too similar to Tsunami.

Tuh NAH me

Bit similar to Toon Army - is she a Newcastle United supporter? grin

Thanks for replies.

It is actually Tan-uh-my (rhymes with sky) and no emphasis on any syllable so a bit like the rhythm of Jessica and Isabelle IYSWIM.

I thought most people would think it rhymes with Tsunami.

isn't one of Jordans called Tiiammmii or summat? Too similar.
