Pronunciation of "Hui"

I've been hanging out with a friend of my friend Hui (her name is Yan). Yan lives in Beijing.

When I first met her she told me that Hui's name is pronounced more like "Huey" with a short e sound.

That was really embarassing that I didn't even know how to pronounce my friend's name, but that's what I'd been always taught!
