Yeah, I've always thought it ought to be with the
stress on the "ankh" syllable, like you said, not the
other way, because a lot of the pharaohs intentionally
chose a name with the word "ankh" in it to represent
their 'eternal life'. So I kinda doubt they'd
intentionally choose a name with "ankh" in it and then
pronounce it in a way which doesn't include "ankh" at
all... :-)
