Howto pronouce Mysql

After reading about the name MySql, I became unshure how to pronounce it.
My is evidently not the English possessive adjective 'my', but the FinnishSwedish female name 'My', which is pronounced entirely different. On top of my head I'm not shure the vowel sound exists in english. Evenmore confusing we Europeans tend to pronounce SQL as the three English letter S-Q-L not 'seequel' as Americans do.
Do anyone know or is there a link like:

'Hello I'm Michael Widenius and I pronounce MySql - MySql'

My or lilla My (little My) is a kind but very mischievous little girl in the books
about the Moomin Trools of Tove Jansson.
