If it's some consolation it's pronounced [E'rIk] or [E'Rik],
and if you were not an emperor you would of course simply
become ['EnrIk]/['EnRIk]. Your surname might have lost its
"h" in Old or Middle Rhodrese, but again not in modern,
which is a well-behaved Western language, where names of
rulers are for some reason (still) adapted, but not names of
other people -- assuming that Popes count as rulers.
