I've found the name in the Internet.

One is from Isreal and the other is from Australia. This is a family name, not a shortened name. This name is translated into Chinese "韦津利". Let's find a reliable reference for its prounciation.

This quote is from a website I found, a transcription of a classrom conversation with a Prof. Wajnyrb:

"....kathyc says " while we're in a lull, can I ask the professor how to pronounce her name?"

....ProfWajnryb says " sure, why? do you find it hard? (joking) VINE-RIB - see, it's easy!""

I'm sure she means like the two English words "vine" (a twisty plant) and "rib", like the rib bones in your chest.

This is the whole page, but there's nothing more about the name on it:
I am not rich.  :L
