Alright, silly question.

How do you pronounce Esox?

I have always pronounced the E like in Ecuador, but I was speaking to someone
yesterday and they used a long EEE sound. It actually took me several minutes
to realize what they were saying. Mispronounciation is a pet peave of mine,
so I just wanted to see what the concensus was.
