At first it was pronounced Kikero. Caesar was pronounced Kajsar. C was pronounced as K and Ae as aj or just as I in English.

In Latin it would be pronounced ki`kero (long i, short e, long o, emphasis on the first syllable).

Though it is almost impossible to tell how the ancient Romans would have pronounced something, judging by the fact the Romans were obviously Italian, they probably, as I was informed by my Latin teacher, have pronounced -ce and -ci like modern Italians. That would make this name Chi-che-ro. Though of course, one cannot be certain.

No, the pronunciation provided by the anonymous user (and honungspinglan) would be correct in Classical Latin.
