Pronunciation of Rhiannon in Devizes UK

My name is Rhiannon. Although I am English, most Welsh people I know pronounce my name as ree-an-NON, rolling the r a little, with the emphasis on the last syllable (contradicting the stated rule of placing emphasis on the penultimate syllable (as also in Spanish). It's a nice name but doesn't sound nice if you pronounce the last syllable as -in or -un. See my website rhiannoncox.com for more information about the origin of the name Rhiannon.
