Interesting ... can you give a word that it sounds like? For example, klei rhymes with clay? :)

Wrong. While Klei as in the company is pronounced with "l" the Russian word has a sound to the l so that it sounds a lot like Latvian "ļ". You have to look on google to find the sound of it yourself. For English people it is very hard to pronounce as far as I know.

I learnt german for a short time also there is a similar word klei(n). It's pronounce similar to Dr.Klei in Half Life series.

 

But that's not even remotely pronounced like "clay"

I've always pronounced it Kelly, until one day I took a real good look at the name and went, "Hey, the letters aren't in the right order for that!"
