I would pronounce it Tye-Ses
I looked at it and immediately thought "Tai-ksiss".
I think the X with the KS sound makes the most sense. Think of the words Styx and Axis. Tyxis would rhyme with Axis, so Tike-sis would be my answer. With the nature of X here, you almost need to break the K sound into the first syllable and the S sound into the second.
Although I'd be okay with saying it similar to the name Tychus from Starcraft also, kind of dropping the "s" from the "ks" sound, so Tie-kiss. Similarly you could drop the K sound and say Tie-sis.
Tike-sis would be the most proper in my eyes, but Tie-kiss or Tie-sis would be okay with me too.

according to google translate (its pronunciate feature) its Tick-sys
Here's the biggest catch: you're talking about a name. However the creator of the name says it's to be pronounced is correct.
My impulse is Tyke-sis, but if you corrected me that would be that.
Tie - zis, 10 char
Tie Shis would be a way to pronounce it using the Chinese pronunciation for the letter x.
when all else fails, read the STICKIES.
Tyk-siss i think :P
/take it like a man
Moonkin 4.2 PvP.
I would pronounce it Tick-siss or Tike-siss.
Obviously if you corrected me, I'd use your own pronounciation, it's your name after all!

I think I've settled on "Tie-Cheese"
