    In Welsh, "ch" is is really one letter. It's pronounced like the "ch" in "Loch Ness Monster." Quite simple. I'm also 70% you can't start a syllable with it.

    "y," unless it is the last vowel, is pronounced like the "o" in "above"

    "c" and "n" should be two separate sounds.

    Therefore: (forgive my lack of knowledge of IPA)
    C'Nick-oor
    "ca-nick-oor"
    (keeping in mind that the "a" should hardly even be noticeable)

    As a final note, "c" should not be pronounced as "hard" as "ch." Basically, don't put as much effort into saying "c" as you would "ch." (Although, it's pretty much the same sound, just said shorter/weaker.)

    Interesting. Wasn't expecting a serious answer from anyone.

    Unless you live in a very Gaelic area - and it seems clear that you do not - please do not name your child this. Unless you want to give them problems even before out of the gate. This kid will get ass woopings like you wouldn't believe from other children and if they are IXFP, god help 'em you will have a druggie bassist son on your hands by age 14.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
