Pronunciation

I just heard an interview with Lynn Cheney, the wife of the Vice President. One burning question that came up: What is the correct pronunciation of "Cheney"? Is it "Chay-ney" or "Chee-ney"?

Lynn Cheney said she'd been confused when she first married into the family, so she went to the oldest living relative and asked him.

"I'm so glad you asked," he said, "It's 'Chay-ney'."

"Oh, thank you. By the way, what's that dog jumping around your feet?"

"Cute little guy, ain't he? He's a bagel."
