I would pronounce [gil&~] but this name is written and pronounced in various
ways in both the masculine and feminine ( [zhisl&~], [zhislEn], etc.)

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. -Mark
