    I thought it was YIE-fay, as in it rhymes with "eye".

    Thank you all very much but I am not sure how different between /yee-fei/, "yee fay", and "yiffy". I am not a native English speaker.

    I think the first syllable is read as /yee/ or /yi/. The latter is a bit short in pronunciation. Is that right?

    I read the second syllable as /fei/, approximation of the first part of "face".

    I do not know how "fay" and "ffy" are read exactly. How are they like /fei/ or something else?

    Thank you for your further help.

    I thought it would be Yee-fay, with the ee like we and the ay like may

    Yiffy would be pronounced yif - ee - with the first part sounding like the word lift without the t; It would like the English words jiffy or iffy

    I read it like yi-fay

    yi sounds like lift

    Fay sounds like the first part of face, like you said

    Thank you all so much. It sounds that it can be pronounced okay in English although it is not that intuitive.

    It is almost exactly yee-fay in Chinese and I think yiffy /yif-ee/ is also acceptable.
