Most possibly, it is "リアン" (rian), as LeAnne Rimes, the young country singer, is "リアン・ライムス".

Though there are some examples of "リーアン" (riian) and of "レアン" (rean), "リアン" (rian) would be okay. This is also the closest to the original English pronunciation, where accent falls on "a".

Considering the asker¥'s name, I guess that she has misspelled the question word for this question, not ¥"eanne¥" but ¥"leanne¥". So, what the asker is looking for is how her name is written in Japanese.

Eanne is イアン。 There are such a name I now find out, both on its own, and as an abbreviation for other names. Saint Eanne, for example.

Eanne イアン (Ian)

Correction: ¥"There is such a name...¥"
Also, in romaji ¥"Ian¥" is not pronounced ¥"Ai-an,¥" but closer to ¥"Yi-an.¥"

I can't find exact name in Japanese.
We can read, however, "anne" as "アンヌ", so regarding "eanne"(e-anne) I think it may be read as "イアンヌ"(ian-nu).
