When introducing myself...

My name is Jenna. When I introduce myself, do I say my name as I say it in English, or do I say "yenna" to fit with the dutch pronunciation rules?

I'd pronounce your name the way you always do, I assume that that's also what you'd prefer to be called. The way you pronounce it, is the correct way after all. :)

I wouldn't really say it would matter, I wouldn't bother to change the pronunciation of your name to Dutch, especially if it was English in the first place!
