I've been saying "My S-Q-L" since the beginning but after hearing "Sequel Server" in reference to MS SQL Server I thought maybe people actually do pronounce our favorite Db program "My Sequel".
So what do you say or hear most often?

it's kind of tongue tying to say M-S-S-Q-L...hence "sequel server"...

This is right off the MySQL home page:

The official way to pronounce MySQL is ``My Ess Que Ell'' (not MY-SEQUEL). But we try to avoid correcting people who say MY-SEQUEL.
However, I often do correct people who mispronounce it (lol).

I've never heard anyone say My-SEQUEL. I'll definetly correct them if I hear it....

I stand corrected. But the "My Sequel" pronunciation is less syllables and rolls off the tongue easier.

Just today I had one of those suffering, poet-to-be types that works at a well known *large* book store pronounce MySQL as "My Sequel." Needless to say, and although the store was packed with every Microsoft product ever produced, this particular (B***** and N****) book store did not have a single book on mysql.
After reading these posts and after visiting the MySQL website, I think I now know why the *large* book store didn't have any MySQL books.
