Tabouli the animate salad

Phew. Just finished phoneticising 17 lists of names from a vast range of languages to be read out at graduation ceremonies. A mammoth linguaphilic task. There was, however, one name that totally baffled me, and that was Singehebhuye. It was the third part of a three part name, and Google seems to think the second part (which I won't put in here for confidentiality reasons) is Estonian. For want of any brighter ideas, I found an online Estonian pronunciation guide and came up with something based on that (on the grounds that it's better my struggling profs say something when this name turns up), but to be honest, I wouldn't put any money on my efforts being right.

Any clues? Anyone? Estonian speakers??
