How do you pronounce Cienniwa?

SIN-uh-wah. The next question you'll ask is "what kind of name is that?" The original Polish name is Cienciwa. I'm not quite sure why the name was changed by my grandfather, but I like to think that Cienciwa has its origins in Cięciwa, a Polish word for chord or string.

Many people pronounce my name incorrectly, such as CHIN-uh-wah or See-eh-NEE-wah or SEA-en-ih-wah, and none of this bothers me. But, in its glorious Americanization, it really should be pronounced as my family pronounces it: SIN-uh-wah.
