How do you pronounce this name?

How do you pronounce Evangeline?

Is it E-van-gel-leen (rhymes with bean) or E-van-gel-line (rhymes with vine)?

This is our girl name, if it is a girl, but we want to pronounce it how majority ppl would say it when they see it written.

I say Evangeline ( rhymes w bean) and hubs says was Evangeline (rhymes w vine).

Evangelina is a Spanish name, and pronounced ee-na at the end. So, I would pronounce Evangeline rhyming with bean as well.

My sister had a friend in high school that pronounced it with "LYN" at the end (even though it's spelled "Line"). That's how I like it best, but apparently I'm weird (It's okay, I've known THAT for years!!)
