Pretty much the same with Jenk, except that I pronounce it as kry-sah-o-ray when there are several of them (read: that's how I read Chrysaorae, what I believe to be the plural form of Chrysaora :P )

Ah, the plural sounds like it would be kry-sah-o-ra-ay

The dipthong "ae" in a Greek word like Chrysaorae rhymes with "eye"

Russian word for Chrysaora is pronounced something like khree-a-so-ra. But being a dumb kid special cookie that I am, I got used to pronounce cry-a-sour-ah.

When people are arguing about chrysaoras and I can't even pronounce the thing that's supposed eat said jellyfish

Lazy hunglish pronounciation:

Cree - Zah - Ore - Ah

Also maybe the following, because it smoothens the letter clutter:

Cry - Sore - Ah

I do not say that any of these are correct.

Btw, when it's about foreign words, I like to use the original pronunciation. It really pisses me that in English all Latin and Greek words
are pronounced using English rules. (I'm not talking about words which are just originated from those languages, I mean fully Latin
words, like Latin anatomical names, e.g. fibula, humerus etc.)

So, the "lazy Hungarian pronunciation" is o.k. I guess, maybe switching Zah with Sah.
