Shy-lock

Hi everyone,

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?

Thanks,
Poplar Macintosh III

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

From the CMU PR=ronouncing Dictiionary:

Shylock
