How is Nikola Tesla pronounced, anyway?

How is Telsa's name supposed to be pronounced?

Nee koh lah
Nih koh lah
or even
Ny koh lah (since it's probably derived from Nike, Greek for victory)..

Which syllable accented? 
I've heard  "nih KOH lah"  the most frequently, but that hardly means it's

And, then, is that TESS lah, TEZZ lah, tess LAH or tezz LAH...

or something even different??
