K what ya?

I’ve always pronounced the name Ksenia as Ka-Zeen-ya.  Recently, I learned that actress Ksenia Solo pronounces her name Ka-Sen-ya.  I wonder what’s up with that exactly?  It’s not unusual for a name to have a couple different pronunciations.  I wonder if any of the gymnasts named Ksenia actually say their names differently than I thought.  Of course, it could be that Ksenia Solo was named by someone who didn’t actually know how to pronounce Ksenia.  That’s happened before.  Ksenia Solo was born in Latvia so she probably pronounces her name the Latvian way.
