Submitted from:  Seattle, WA, USA
Pronunciation:  There's substantial regional variation in how "kj" is pronounced, none of which are considered official. I live in the U.S. and advise others to pronounce my name as follows:

The letter combination "kj" is a voiceless postalveolar affricate — the IPA symbol for which is the digraph t͡ʃ. In American English, this sound usually written "ch" (e.g. Kjell is like "cello" without the "-o," or like "chelsea," without the -"sea").

Additional Information:  There was a media campaign in Norway to make a single letter pronounced Kjell. It looks like this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kjell_(norwegian_letter).svg
