Did Disney ruin the name Anna?

Literally every time I see the name written down I'm tempted to say "Aaah-nuh" thanks to that dumb Frozen franchise, when it's supposed to be pronounced "Ann-uh".Are people more likely to use the former pronunciation now?

Update:

Yes they may have ruined the name Elsa too but at least they kept the original pronounciation.

    It's supposed to pronounced An-nah. Any English speaking person would know how to pronounced it correctly.

    Aaah-nah and Ann-uh are the exact same

    I didn't watch Frozen, so no. You didn't have to watch it or pay attention to it. While I'm aware of the characters Elsa and Anna, I still read Anna normally.

    No. There's no right or wrong way to pronounce it

    I've heard it pronounced both ways (and both ways are correct, depending where a person is from), so no, they did not ruin the name.
