But you have had training in German.  In the US, we pronounce the first syllable as the word 'you', hence something like [juNliN],  with [i] in the latter syllable, rhyming with 'seen', but shorter. Naturally, when I lived in Germany, I pronounced umlaut and the <L> differently.  BTW, it's not umlaut that gives away most Americans who speak good German, it's the pronunciation of <L>.

Unpronounceable for "them", I suppose. For many of us here the
only question is, Which of the expected possibilities (or what other) do
*you* prefer? I would put German ['jyNlIN] and Anglicized ['jINlIN] at
the top of the n-best list.
