Apparently it is the welsh version of Niamh so is it pronounced Nee-uv like Niamh or Nigh-ah which is what I always though?

my neighbour is welsh- she is called Nia.... and pronounces it NEE-UGH (She speaks alot of welsh guess this is a 'welsh' way of saying it?) It may vary in south wales- where less welsh spoken
