same but i considered "an guy ris" as another possible alternative
Well the word actually derives from Angiras which is a Hindu name given to a group of celestial beings who descended from the Fire God 'Agni'.

Being of south-asian descent, I can confidently tell you that 'Agni' would be pronounced "Aug nee."

Seeing that the word derives from the Hindu language, I would say the word most likely is pronounced "On geer ees" where the "ees" has a short stress rather than a long stress.

If someone with a background in linguistics wants to clarify my explanation, I'm all for it, lol.
An-jirr-izz
Angiriscope. Balance in all things.

Yeah I've heard about this name while the Angiris Council were revealed. Though I clearly do see now "Angiris" could have defiantly derived from "Angiras" with the symbolic meaning, I only viewed it as a clobbered up word with angel serving as the basis of Angiris.

Usually my tongue does slips to "An-gere-is."
"AN- Jeer - Is". It derives From Angels i think.
I guess "Wrath" cleared that up for everyone, eh?
i couldn't see it yet... how is the pronunciation after all?
Ann-jeer-is

Ann rhymes with ban
jeer rhymes with deer

Hahaha! I was rushing home to post this! You beat me to it!
I've always said "Ang-eer-us," like angle.
