The surname is pronounced “de vinney.” My authority on this is second-hand, but closely so. The American printer T.J. Lyons (1892–1986), who was a friend and mentor of mine, was a friend of the person who had installed the first Linotype machines at De Vinne’s plant on Lafayette Street, in New York City. The building still stands today.
