I like to pronounce it to Chinese players as "Yinny" like "Vinny." And then quickly pronounce it correctly to non-chinese speakers as "Yin Huh."

I've actually heard both, not sure why one would pronounce it as "Yin Her", but for me it's "Yin He", or Galaxy.

Because I think "Yin Her" is actually the way it's pronounced in Chinese. (The "r" would be silent.) Same as that brand of washing machines (Haier), which, come to think of it, sounds like a certain expression of exasperation often used by the Chinese.. :lol:

I asked a Chinese guy once and I can't remember what it was but I could not even phonetically replicate it.

Google translate "milky way" into Chinese (simplified), then you can listen to the lady say the words in Mandarin.
