Yup, thats what I thought too, but it might just be because we use the word "Aye" to mean yes around here, so it's easier to say =P

I always pronounced it "ai-ya" or "i-ya". "Ai-ya" just seems a natural way to say it, but then again, it is a Japanese name, so pronunciations vary from English....

Yeah, Eye-A makes sense. I'm pretty sure that they don't hawthe letter a in Japanese. Maybe I'm wrong, so correct me if I am.
