Actually, it seems to me like it's pronounced "be-LA-na", where the first
"e" is pronounced like the Klingon "e", but a little bit shorter. Hence
<belana>. I've never heard an initial "Bay" sound. I could be wrong, though.
I don't watch Voyager.

beru'Ha would be good. You may never say it in front of anyone else, but do
at least repeat it to yourself a few times to see how it sounds.
