Pronunciation of Eavan??

I love the name Eavan but after reading many opinions on how to pronounce it I'm confused!! Most people from Ireland seem to say it is Ee-van...but does the van sound like the american vehicle van or more like americans would pronounce von? Is it kind of lazily said like Eve-in? I've even heard Aven and Evan. Heck, I like them all, but definitely would prefer the traditional pronunciation....
