Ohhhhhhhhhh, the internet let me down. I thought for sure it could also be pronounced as "Rise" according to the unimpeachably accurate web site Babynamespedia.com:
On the other hand, who's to say that here in the states, where we have a different way of thinkin' about speakin' and writin' English, it isn't pronouned RISE? After all, if we can drop the "u" from words like "colour," put articles in front of words like "hospital," use "phat" instead of "fat" AND get these variants into the OED turn nouns like "cotton" into verbs, a little vowel switching every now and then is a piece of CAKE!

Talking of which (not sure if I've mentioned this already) 'Koom' seems to be pronounced like the Welsh word 'cwm' - which means 'valley'. So Koom Valley could be Valley Valley.
