Jadyn.

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??

You pronounce names in whatever way the person chooses to be addressed.

Just by looking I’d say Jay-din until told otherwise.

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.

Jay-din.
Not even all English words follow any set of rules. Names certainly don't.
