how to pronounce names in greek

I have a question, how do you pronounce your name in greek? Mine is κενσινγτον. Do you pronounce that by letters, or is there a completely different way? Please post your answer or question below.

From what i see, your name in Greek is Κένσιγκτον, so that the closest to the original pronounciation is retained. So Mary becomes Μαίρη and not Μάρυ (which would be the letter-to-letter transcription).
