Yes, but the "o" is not correct.

To listen Letizia's name being pronounced, click on the following link:

Choose the video:

18/10/2005
[100%] príncipes de Asturias abandonan la clínica Ruber tras el ingreso de doña Letizia con contracciones

Then this screen will appear:

Elige un formato (choose the format)
Windows Media or Real Player

Selecciona tipo de conexión (Select your conection type)
Modem (240x180) or ADSL (400X300)

and click in "ver vídeo"

Letizia's name is pronounced several times in this video, as it is about the false alarm that made her and Felipe to go to the hospital.

I thought I heard Fergie say it like this- U-ja-Ni (the a is a little long), but I'm probably way off.

That's how I thought Fergie said it too. I always called her U-genie, until I heard Fergie say it like U-ja-nee

Maybe Dutch speakers can help me with this: how is Orange-Nassau pronounced?

Is the Orange part pronounced the same as orange(the fruit), and Nassau like the city in the Bahamas?
The Bahamas Nassau is pronounced Nass-awe like "awe" in 'you are in "awe" of someone'.

Re:

I've always said Orange as in the fruit and Nassau as Nass-ow (as in the sound one makes when jabbed with a pin)
