OT: pronunciation question

I've recently encountered in written form a new name, apparently
popular among male French Canadians, which I have never heard
pronounced.  It is spelled "Ghyslain", and from what little I know
of French orthography I would guess it is pronounced as CXS
[giz'l&~], but if someone who actually knows could confirm or correct
that, I'd appreciate it.

(It's the name of a chocolatier, several actors, and the now-infmaous
"Star Wars kid" whose homemade [well, school-made, else a classmate would
not have discovered and posted it] Jedi practice video made the Internet
rounds earlier this year.)
