Ah-keel-lay is how you would say it in Italian. In America, you would say Ah-kill-ee. If you have heard of achille's heel or the achille tendon, it would be said the same way.

Some of the native Italians will be able to help you more on this one, but I can tell you that "y" does not exist in the Italian alphabet, so the "y" is probably some other vowel, perhaps an "e" or an "i".
