Diana - or as her name is pronounced in her native land - Daah-yaah-nuuhhhrrr.

 
:scratchhead:
 
I don't know anyone who pronounces Diana like that.

 


Me neither. Hereabouts that name is pronounced 'deeaanaa' ('aa' representing the vowel in 'aargh') with stress on the second syllable. Her shine has waned a bit here.

 

Except maybe Paul Anka
