Hello, sorry to be a bother, but I was just wondering how the On reading of this was pronounced. Is it like the beginning of sweet (swee) or like saying someone's name who was Sue E., but fast. Or is it pronounced some different way? Sorry if none of this really made any sense.

Like "Sue E." just a little quicker.

Yup, its pronounced like "Sue E". Dont get it mixed up with "Swee" because even though they sound the same, they really are different so be careful ;) And it would be spelled out in the sense of "sui" in Japanese letters.
