antiochian orthodox

I've never figured this out.  Is the correct pronunciation antee-oak-ian or antee-ahk-ian?

I used to attend an Antiochian parish and I've always heard it called an-tee-o-kee-an.

I pronounce it ant-ee-oak-ian, but I have heard both pronunciations and would assume that both are fine  :)

I had always been calling it by the second pronunciation you give, but I've been listening to Ancient Faith Radio recently, and I've only heard them give the first one.
