How is Mayavi pronounced

I have been traveling recently and talking to friendly Geeks I didn’t know yet. I have been surprised to see that many people were pronouncing “Mayavi”, “Maya-V-I”, is in “V-I”, like the old Unix editor. Maybe this comes from the spelling “MayaVi”, that Prabhu and I recently decided to avoid. Well, Mayavi is actually pronounced “Ma-ya-vee”, and it comes from an old sanskrit name meaning magician.
