Since Anglicizing this, our family has either stubbornly pronounced it "foreign" or "Forhnnnn"(as they thought correct) or "FORE-han" in order to get people to spell it properly. However, I've gotten the impression somehow that it should be "Fore-HAINE". Any suggestions? I don't know if fadas were lost in the anglicization.

Ursula, A Chara,
I'm not very good with pronunciations but I would render it
Foor-in or Foor-ain with the emphasis on the Foor.
P.S. hope that other info (off subject) helps!
