Cyril can also be pronounced SYE-rihl. It's much more commonly pronounced that way by Americans.

Pronounced "TSEER-il" (shortly).

That is the Czech pronunciation; except that I would write it TSI-ril, because it's short.

I THOUGHT this name was pronounced SIE-ril in English. I thought everybody pronounced it this way, but it doesn't seem to be like that. I don't like the pronunciation "SEER-il", sounds pretty odd and I would never think of this pronunciation when seeing the spelling of Cyril, ever.

This name is NOT traditionally pronounced SEER-əl, but SIR-əl (with a short "I"). The latter has my preference.

All wrong. The correct pronunciation in English is SIHR-uhl.

Czech and Slovak pronunciation is "tsi:reel".

I've always pronounced my name like "cereal" leaving the "ea" sound out. My mother says it the same as well as my aunt on my father's side. I am the forth one in the family with the same first and last name but the first had a different middle name. It is interesting to learn where the name comes from.
