I always thought it was hine-lynn, but knowledgable folks in the industry (like Gordon) pronounce it hine-line, so I assume that's the correct way.

I've never heard it pronounced any way other than "hine-line."

I always pronounced it Hine-lynn, but I haven't heard anyone else do it, so I suspect it's incorrect.

I've only ever heard it pronounced "Hine-line."

There's a fine line between Hine-line and Hine-lynn.
Well, somebody had to say it.

I'm going to really embarrass myself one of these days. I look at a name like that and think Hean-lean.

Heh. As a reader I like to think I have a fairly extensive vocabulary, but since I don't have all that many people I actually speak with, I'm fairly certain there are a whole lot of words I pronounce wrong. It's very annoying when I use a word in conversation, and the other person doesn't get it, and I don't know whether he or she simply doesn't know the word, or if I'm mispronouncing the thing.

Alas for those of us who've committed the sin
of pronouncing a famous name wrong, as Hine-lynn.
Strange land indeed, for print has defined
the spelling alone, not the sound, of Hine-LINE!

I have vague memories of a pronunciation guide in the forward to the Unabridged Stranger in a Strange Land, but I might be imagining that. I can't check because I loaned my copy out and it never came back.
This F.A.Q says it's pronounced Hine-line.
