Jay-din or Jad-in?
This lady in the parent group in my sons university kept calling her DD Jay-din but the name is clearly phonetically spelled Jad-in. No??
Jay-din because that's how the kid I used to know pronounced it.

In English, “dyn” makes a specific syllabication of ˈdɪn.
You could argue between the pronoun citation of “Ja” as ˈjɑː or ˈdʒeɪ , but there isn’t really a standing argument for where the syllabic separation would be.
In English it would be assumed to be pronounced
ˈdʒeɪ ˈdɪn by most people.
