How to say FICO???

A little off topic, and maybe a little silly but I was wondering.
Can anyone tell me the correct pronounciation of FICO?  I write it all the time and realized I have no idea how to say it.
 
Is it FICO as in F-ee-co  or FICO as in F-eye-co??

See and just looking at the word, I think F-ee-co.
 
I guess it's a  po-tay-to/po-tah-to or to-may-to/to-mah-to type thing.

Ahhhhh!!  There's another one, I didn't even think to go there.  But a very valid option.  So here we go:
 
Is it:
 
F-ee-co
F-eye-co
F-ick-o
?????

What's the saying, "there are no stupid questions, just stupid....", nevermind.
 
I've always heard it F-eye-co.  But, perhaps like some parts of the country call coke, soda, or pop, you can get away with saying f-ee-co.  But, I will laugh and point at you if you do.

LOL!!  Good one!  Especially the "ick" part, cause I said something along those lines when I say my score.

You'd really laugh at me for saying f-ee-co?  :smileysad: I'm hurt, I can't help it if my Caribbean heritage affects my pronounciation of words.
 
P.S. I wouldn't really be hurt:smileyhappy:
