What Jimmy G said is correct, the official pronunciation is:
However, as a bit of trivia, the original pronunciation is more like:
because My is the name of Monty's daughter, and in Swedish, the
pronunciation of My sounds more like "Me"...
p.s. That is also where "Max-DB" comes from. Max is the name of
Monty's son, not an implication that Max-DB is "better" than MySQL.
