Subject: Czech pronounciation

How would you pronouce -ie names like Silvie, Olivie, Lucie, and Cecilie? I'm especially interested in the accent
For example is Silvie SEEL-vi-e, sil-VEE-e or sil-vi-E? Or maybe SEEL-vi?

Secondly, is Livie really a masculine name? My Czech friend says it's feminine. (I'd ask her about the pronounciation as well, but at the moment she is far away from Europe, and I can't talk to her)

Thanks! :)
