It's pronounced Gee, with a hard G. It used to be a very popular name in France and it's all over their history books. I had trouble with this when we first moved.

"Hey guys"
Guy looked over, confused.
"Not Guy, I mean... um.... nevermind"

I wish this wasn't a generic term for a man. It was better just as a name.

if someone said "Hey, Guy!" probably every guy around you would look at you, not recommended as a name, my opinion
