It's very difficult to pronounce Tamnhi Huynh when the accents have been removed. However, the last name Huynh is a popular Vietnamese surname and it's pronounced like Nguyen but with an H sound at the beginning. Usually, there is an accent on the y which correlates with a higher tone. As for the name Tamnhi, my best guess would be Tam-knee or something along those lines. The "t" is not hard but not too soft either. All in all, it's impossible to pronounce the name correctly because the Vietnamese language is based on accents and sounds. Thus, with the accents removed, it's very much colloquialized to fit an American pronunciation rather than how it's intended. It would be like trying to pronounce Korean words based on their Romanization; almost there, but not quite.
