I'm reading Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" and I am wondering how to pronounce Shylock's name. Is it pronounced like "Shy-lock" or like "Shlock?" Has anyone seen the play performed live and can confirm how to say the name?

the first time I read it, I said "shlock" but, it's actually pronounced like "shy-lock".
