I say Zay-vee-er. We are planning to use this, if we have another son. My husband likes pronouncing it the Spanish way and saying Ha-vee-er, or the French way, Hav-vee-ay but he agrees that this would be confusing to insist on in America, so we are going w. the Zay-vee-er pronounciation. I agreed that we can call him Havi as a nickname and also that if he ever decides to move to Barcelona or Paris, we can pronounce him name in the appropriate way for wherever he lives. My husband is somewhat obsessed with the idea that our children will move to other countries. This comes up a lot in our naming discussions.
I think that in the old X-men comics, they used to spell Professeor X's name like Xzavier.

I would pronounce it starting with a "Z" sound, not an "X" personally.
