I was thinking more pirate-ese, though South African might come closest...

No, it sounds like neenevay or ninnevay. But to complete coffeebean's animalfarm : ca9 , falco9, hye9, halco9, leo9. Could we hit the

We pronounce it nin eh vuh in these parts...

I think some of those have the "een" sound at the end, not "ine", but I'm not sure which, and I gotta run...
