    Please see this thread: Pronunciation: Xavier and Yvette

    You will see that the pronunciation depends in part on the variety of English you speak, but primarily on the preference of the person whose name it is.

    You may add a question to the thread if you wish, but the most practical thing would be to ask the person himself, or his secretary. :)

    I am closing this thread to avoid duplicating the discussion.
